We are pleased to inform our Community of the available support programs to attend the THC2018!
Early Career Researchers: With support from the University of Manchester Hallsworth Conference Fund, the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research is able to offer Triple Helix Conference and Travel Scholarships to support early career researchers to attend the conference. If currently registered on a full-time doctoral course or you are within 3 years of completing your PhD, and are successful in having your paper or poster accepted for Triple Helix 2018, you will be invited to apply for a scholarship to assist your travel expenses. Following review, we anticipate providing up to 30 scholarships. Our funding does not allow us to cover conference registration costs, but you can register at the discounted student/early career rate.
Carer support: We recognise that child care and other carer responsibilities can constrain conference participation and lead to an under-representation of those with such responsibilities. A number of universities have established support resources address this. At the University of Manchester, the Alliance Manchester Business School (AMBS) has made available a Carer Support Fund for Research Related Professional Development. If an individual’s circumstances are such that they need additional support/care to help them present at the Triple Helix Conference, this Fund can provide additional support for members of the AMBS community on application and review. Presenters coming from outside of the University of Manchester can also apply to the Fund. Many other universities also have carer support and funding available and presenters are encouraged to investigate what opportunities exist in their home school/institution. If other options for child care at or nearby to the conference venue can be identified, we will highlight these on the conference web site.
