ICGEB Awareness Workshop - Afghanistan, 5 July 2021

Awareness Workshops – providing opportunities for scientists in Member States

ICGEB Awareness Workshops provide information and advice on how to apply for different ICGEB activities (grants, fellowships, meetings, and courses).

Workshops held to date include Cuba, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Montenegro, Romania, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, additional workshops have taken place online with ICGEB Member States Afghanistan, Angola, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Turkey, Sri Lanka (focusing on CRPs), Sudan, Trinidad & Tobago and Zimbabwe. An online awareness workshop was also held with Djibouti, pending membership.

Awareness Workshops are conducted by Lawrence Banks, ICGEB Director-General, and/or Vittorio Venturi, ICGEB Scientific Coordinator, together with Marianna Maculan, Chief, External Relations, in collaboration with ICGEB’s Appointed Governors and Scientific Liaison Officers in the hosting country. The workshops aim to provide an opportunity for local scientists to learn directly about ICGEB’s programmes and possibilities for funding.

The workshops also provide a forum in which to explain the criteria that are important for successful applications. They have proven not only highly popular but also extremely successful in raising the number and quality of the applications received by ICGEB, as well as increasing engagement with our Member States. On average, Workshops involve between 50-80 participants.
