Attend a workshop
Terms and conditions
- The proposal must be submitted by a Full Member or Fellow of The Physiological Society.
- A maximum of one proposal per Member per year is permitted.
- The workshop must offer training in a technique of relevance to physiologists and the proposal must explain how it supports physiology research.
- The proposal must include a draft programme, potential dates, a breakdown of costs and support from the host institution (see point 8). The Society would also be keen to receive information about target demographics and potential marketing opportunities although this is not essential.
- Funding can be used to cover venue hire, consumables, delivery costs, demonstrator fees, speaker expenses, preparation fees and catering. Attendee costs (e.g. travel, accommodation) must not be included.
- The proposal should include details of any resources that will be available after the event, for the benefit of the wider membership and/or public.
- If successful, new proposals will be allocated funding for one year, with the potential to apply for longer-term funding thereafter.
- The workshop provider’s institution must be willing to administer the grant.
- The workshop provider is responsible for the overall administration of their workshop. The Society will assist with marketing, and will liaise with the workshop provider on an appropriate method of data collection and evaluation.
- Marketing must acknowledge sponsorship by The Society, and the logo used in accordance with Society guidelines (available on request).
- Additional sponsorship from other organisations is encouraged and should be outlined in the proposal if already secured. If successful, the workshop provider will be asked to provide details of any sponsorship gained since their proposal was submitted.
- Funding will be considered in Q4 and workshops that are awarded funding will receive the funds in Q1 of the following year. A second call for funding may take place in Q1 for Q4 of the same year as well.
- Priority for places must be given to Members of The Society.*
- The workshop provider must submit a report of the workshop – including attendee list, details of any new resources generated and final costings – to The Society within two months after the workshop has taken place.
*Workshop providers are advised to consider how they will incentivise attendance e.g. via a registration fee that is refundable on attendance.
