Support for small meetings

The BSCB provides financial support for small cell biology-oriented meetings within the UK.

Criteria for support

  • The meeting must not be organised for profit.
  • The meeting should be organised primarily by local scientists and should have a total budget of no more than £10K.
  • The meeting must be relevant to cell biologists, and ideally should be open to all scientists to attend.
  • The organiser(s) applying for funding must be members of the BSCB.

We are happy to support regional meetings, but will not support seminars or seminar series that are largely based in one Department or Institution with only a few external attendees.

Application Procedure

Organisers should supply a 1-2 page document with the name, date and location of the meeting and the names of the organisers. A brief description of why the meeting is relevant to the cell biology community, who potential speakers are, and the planned number of attendees should be included, together with an outline of the budget and a list of other potential sources of funding that are to be approached or who have already agreed support.

Support levels will not normally exceed £1000

Acknowledgement of Support

Should the application for support be successful, we ask that you acknowledge the support of the BSCB on your website and in any printed material circulated about the event, such as the abstracts book. We will provide a logo for these purposes. We may also ask the organisers to provide a short report on the meeting to be included in the BSCB Newsletter. Please also contact the web coordinator to add your BSCB-sponsored meeting to the above table.
