SRF Workshops and Event Sponsorship

SRF-funded workshops (Option A or B)

Applications are accepted throughout the year.

Consideration will be given to support workshops in full or in association with other organisers and/or societies. (Please see ‘Summary of SRF Workshop Packages).

  • Applications for workshops will be considered from current Members (of any membership category) who have paid for at least two calendar years membership).
  • Support will be offered to individuals and/or organisations to facilitate workshops covering focussed areas of interest targeted at SRF Members and the wider reproductive science community.
  • Successful applicants may only submit a further application 2 years after the date of the event for which they were granted support.

 Applicants must, at a minimum be able to:

  • Identify a suitable venue to hold the workshop
  • Propose suggested dates to run the meeting – this does not have to be during the summer months but care should be taken to avoid conflict with any competing meetings.
  • Compile a scientific programme
  • Submit a summary of costs including all relevant components (e.g. venue, catering, speaker expenses, registration)
  • Agree to a Service Level Agreement (SLA).

Organisational support (where requested) will be provided by the SRF Secretariat (The Conference Collective Ltd) who are a Professional Conference Organiser (PCO). The number of Conference Collective supported workshops will be subject to available resources (to be confirmed by CCL).
