ComMet is funded by BBSRC and in turn funds workshops and knowledge exchange visits

I am pleased to announce a call for applications for funding to allow knowledge exchange visits between labs to advance knowledge, expertise, understanding and collaboration within the meta-omics fields. Exchanges should be structured around a specific piece of work or identified knowledge gap. Funding will cover travel and accommodation as well as a contribution towards associated materials. Grants of up to £500 each will be awarded. Applications should include a document detailing the proposed purpose and potential benefit of the visit, (no more than 2 A4 pages), applicants CV and proposed funding breakdown. Letters of support from the destination facility are also needed. The closing date for applications is 31st May. Applications will be considered by the ComMet funding committee and successful applicants notified by the end of June. Successful applicants will be expected to provide feedback to ComMet on the knowledge exchange visit to benefit the community.
