The Enviresearch Foundation Awards 2016 have been launched! We have two awards:
The Enviresearch Foundation Travel Award is intended to add value to existing research of Newcastle University Early Career Researchers (ECRs) working in the area of practical applications of research into the environmentally safe use of chemicals and sustainable agriculture. The types of activities intended to be covered by this award include laboratory, computer modelling or field research within the EEA. The award includes travel, subsistence and accommodation and the possibility of a return visit from the other institution.
The Enviresearch Foundation Community Award is intended to support engagement in Science, Environment and Technology through initiatives that help inspire children in North East England to learn about science. Examples might include: visits to the LIFE museum, science field trips, inviting scientists into schools. The target age range is school years 6 to 8 (= 10 to 13 year olds). This award is being administered by the Community Foundation. This will be launched within the next few weeks.
