To foster synergy and promote interaction amongst the biocuration community, the ISB offers microgrants to all ISB members, to fund local or regional meetings.
All ISB members are eligible to receive a microgrant in the amount of CHF 500 (approximately USD $500, €440 ). There is no deadline, microgrant funding can be requested at any time.
In the past, microgrants have been used to fund poster sessions, room rentals, speaker travel costs, attendee accommodation, administrative costs, bus hire, venue hire and more. We would like to particularly encourage the community to propose ideas related to diversity and inclusion.
To request funds, please download, fill out and sign this short form with a brief description of the purpose of the meeting, its target audience and possible affiliations, including how the meeting will benefit the members of the ISB community, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A flyer is available to promote the microgrants to your community.
