ECR/PhD travel bursaries:
ARCH-UK are offering travel and accommodation bursaries to ALL Early Career Researchers that have registered for the Microbiome workshop.
Eligibility: ECR is defined as PhDs plus researchers within 10 years of completing their PhD. To receive the bursary, bursary recipients are required to bring an A1 size academic poster to informally present their research in the catering areas during tea/coffee/lunch breaks.
Maximum claim amount is £230 and we are only able to cover 1 night of accommodation. Jury’s Inn Aberdeen Airport (location of workshop) have given us a preferable rate of £70 per night bed and breakfast. Please use the booking reference JIUNAB221118 to gain this rate. We can also cover public transport to the event (train, air travel, taxi or car journey, but no first class). Taxis should only be used where public transport options are not practical or less economical. Drivers will be reimbursed 45p per mile.
Travel bursaries can be claimed by returning a specific claim form (emailed to ECRs on registration close on 17th October) with all travel and accommodation receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 months of the event. Claims can take up to 3 weeks to process once received by our finance department.
Once we have gathered abstracts via the attendee information form, Sam Martin and Charles Tyler will invite some ECRs to present a 5 minute ‘elevator pitch style’ talk about their work, scheduled for day one, with the idea that ECRs can continue more in depth conversations about their work at their posters during the networking breaks.

5. If yes to question 4, please select your dinner choices.
The information will inform round-table discussions on day two and help us to produce a delegate pack for the event to keep everyone connected. We also have space within the programme on day one between 15:30-17:00 for a number of short microbiome presentations. These will be selected from the abstracts submitted, attendees will be notified if their abstract has been chosen for a short presentation by 1st November.
