The Inter·GLAM project will award bursaries to support up to 120 conference participants, who would otherwise not be able to attend* - supporting their travel, accommodation, and/or registration fee for LxAddictions22, to enable them to participate in the I·G Track activities and other sessions at Lisbon Addictions 2022.
The application process for an I·G Bursary is now closed
*Priority will be given to those who would otherwise not be able to attend the Lisbon Addiction Conference due to limited resources, and who have the potential to actively participate in the conference and to shape the I·G track on ‘Global perspectives on addictions and drug markets’.
I·G Bursary selection criteria
- Scientific/professional excellence: The scope and achievements of the academic and/or professional practice of the applicant in accordance with their career stage (including early stages) and the opportunities afforded by their sector and/or home country.
- Geographic scope: In keeping with the conference theme of Global Addictions, the bursaries will aim to support inclusion of participants from all countries/regions, and in particular those which are often underrepresented at international conferences/forums.
- Under-resourced background: Applicants from lower income countries (GDP >90% of the European average), from less research-intensive countries, and early career professionals (within 4 years from latest qualification) will be prioritised as well as those working in sectors with fewer resources to fund their attendance at such events, if they fulfil the other selection criteria.
- Engagement in LxAddictions22: The potential for active engagement in the conference and/or Inter·GLAM strand will be a priority criterion. This could be demonstrated, for example, through the submission of an abstract to LxAddictions22, irrespective of whether the submission is accepted. Please describe how you would participate/ how attendance would contribute to your work in your letter of motivation.
Given the current geopolitical situation and possible fluctuations in travel and accommodation costs, we may be forced to reduce the total number of bursaries offered or to increase the proportion of partial bursaries (fees only) offered.
