Training grants of up to £3000 are available to help VALIDATE Associates (post-doctoral researchers) take advantage of training opportunities that will contribute to their professional development. This can include (but is not limited to): attendance at courses or workshops, laboratory exchange, work shadowing, and attendance at an international conference to present a talk (travel to attend conferences is not supported in this fund; travel to the VALIDATE Network annual meeting is funded elsewhere). VALIDATE particularly welcome applications from researchers based in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).
Round 4 is now open. Please submit your application form (found below) and associated documents by email as a single pdf to the Network Management Team ( Sam or Ellie at firstname.lastname@example.org) by 4pm (UK time) on the call closing date. Please ensure you read our application guidance document before you begin writing your application. Please also contact us with any queries.
