Meetings and Events Funding for KWeb Members

The network proposes to enable members to participate in national and international women and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) meetings. Meetings are advertised on our events and meetings section and members in the network are encouraged to apply for funds from their home institutions to attend these meetings.

If you are a Knowledge Web member and did get funding to attend to any of these meetings from your home institution, please let us know. However, if you cannot acquire funds from your home institution, please fill in the application for the participation funding form which is available as a PDF or Word Doc and email it to us - kweb-hoppers-mng@lists.manchester.ac.uk. Our Observatory Oversight Board will review your application and get back to you as soon as possible.


Meetings and Events Funding for Non-Members

To ensure the participation in Knowledge Web meetings of women who do not belong to partner institutes with funding, the project management team provides financial support for travel. Applications by all participants will be assessed by the Observatory Oversight Board. A positive discrimination policy for female applicants is practised.

Please fill in the application for the non-member participation funding form which is available as a PDF or Word Doc and email it to us - kweb-hoppers-mng at lists.manchester.ac.uk.
