If your department is seeking to attract guest speakers, The Physiological Society can help. The Departmental Seminar Scheme (DSS) has been set up to help with the costs of attracting visiting speakers. By contributing to the costs of travel and accommodation, we aim to support members hosting seminars on a physiological research area.

Funding available is dependent on the number of full Members and Affiliates in your organisation:

  • An institution with <12 Members is eligible for a maximum of £250
  • An institution with 12–40 Members is eligible for a maximum of £800
  • An institution with 41–70 Members is eligible for a maximum of £1050
  • An institution with >70 Members is eligible for a maximum of £1250*
* The amount awarded may differ, depending on the number of applications and available budget. 

Those institutions that fall into the smaller bracket are able to apply for an addition to their funding, to support a visit from a high profile speaker. For further details, please email Jen Brammer, Membership Engagement Manager.  

Society Reps are asked to coordinate and submit applications on behalf of their institution.
