We are happy to announce five student travel awards for the workshop on “Global and Regional Sea Level Variability and Change” that will be held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, from June 10-12, 2015. These are meant to support the integration of PhD students into the sea level community and to encourage the participation of young scientists at the workshop. The grants include free registration to the workshop together with financial support for travel and accommodation expenses up to a maximum of 400 euros per person. Applicants are invited to submit a one page CV together with their abstract (call for abstracts will be open from January 1st to March 8th 2015). The grants are sponsored by the European Climate Research Alliance (ECRA).
ECRA is a European organization that aims to strengthen, expand and optimize EU climate research capabilities through the sharing of world-class national facilities in Europe and the collaborative realization of pan-EU programmes. National and European Climate change research programmes have to be streamlined and coordinated, in order to ensure optimum use of human resources, modelling capacities, field activities, and infrastructures, maximizing therefore the impact of scientific results and reinforcing the European Research Area for climate change science.
