Fertility Virtual Conference 2021

BURSARY FOR SRF MEMBERS 2021 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

Fertility 2021, the joint annual conference of ARCS, BFS and the SRF is the main scientific conference in the SRF’s annual calendar of events. Due to the current situation and uncertainty of restrictions in the forthcoming months the decision has been made to host Fertility 2021 as a virtual conference.  The programme will include all the regular Fertility sessions over 5 days, Wednesday 6 to Sunday 10 January 2021.  Sessions will be available to view for some time after the event. The Early Bird registration fee is £99 until 30 November, from 1 December registrations will cost £129.

The SRF Council are please to advise that we will be supporting conference attendance by bursary. The 2021 SRF Bursary will be open to all members who have paid two years* membership fees. Because of the unique situation and unusual circumstances of the conference, this year the Bursary will cover £79 of the registration fee.

  • Early Bird registration fee is £99 and members will pay £20 on application until 30 November 2020.
  • Normal registration fee is £129 and members will pay £50 on application from 1 December 2020.

* Membership for 2019 & 2020 must have been paid by 30 November 2020 to be eligible. This eligibility is different for early career members as described below.
