ESPA 2016 town meeting
28 January 2016
Woburn House Conference Centre, London, WC1H 9HQ
Registration closes 11 December 2015
The ESPA research programme is planning to announce a call for research synthesis projects in early 2016. The call will fund a set of projects that build upon the scientific advances and evidence generated by ESPA grants. They will use ESPA research, knowledge and frameworks as a starting point but researchers should also extend their analysis more widely to consider all other relevant research evidence "looked at through the lens" of ESPA's approach to consider the links between a range of ecosystem services and multiple dimensions of poverty.
On behalf of the ESPA funders, NERC are inviting interested parties to apply to attend a town meeting on 28 January 2016 in central London.
The town meeting will provide an opportunity for the ESPA community to hear about the call, to engage and feed into refining its focus, and to develop contacts and ideas for possible projects. Attendance at the meeting is not a prerequisite to submitting a proposal to the call.
If you wish to attend this town meeting please complete the online registration form by the closing date of 11 December 2015.
In the event the meeting is oversubscribed, the ESPA secretariat will review the applications and shortlist those to invite. For example, limitations may be placed on the number of people attending from the same institution and/or department. To assist with this process, those wishing to attend should email a two page copy of their current CV to the ESPA secretariat at email@example.com.
Applicants will be informed by 16 December 2015 if they have been invited to the ESPA 2016 town meeting.
For applicants from overseas countries wishing to attend the meeting, ESPA will contribute funds for approximately 20 people. Funds available for this will be a maximum of £500 per person to claim back any travel and subsistence costs incurred attending the meeting. Attendees from the UK will be expected to cover their own costs for attendance.
