The Grassroots Science Advice Promotion Awards provides seed grants worth €500 to alumni of INGSA-Asia workshops to organise science advice workshops in their home countries.
The INGSA-Asia Grassroots Science Advice Promotion Awards is an opportunity for the alumni of INGSA-Asia workshops to share their newly gained knowledge and insights on science advice with their fellow scientists and policy makers in their home countries. This award programme was launched in 2019 and has since funded landmark science advice workshops in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, and the Philippines.
In 2021, INGSA-Asia will be offering THREE SEED GRANTS WORTH €500 EACH to selected alumni with high quality and well-outlined proposals to organise workshops promoting science advice at an institutional or national level in their respective countries. If required, the Chapter may also provide experts in science advice to the selected workshops to provide support as facilitators.
- The applicant must have attended at least one INGSA-Asia workshop between 2017 and 2021. Each applicant can submit only one application.
- Seed grants must be utilised to conduct a workshop that promotes science advice in the applicant’s home country. However, the applicant may choose to focus on any specific topic or issue related to science advice for the workshop. Contemporary topics or issues are strongly encouraged (e.g., science advice in the context of COVID-19).
- The proposed project must not cause or encourage any violations of law or public policy and must not result in any improper private benefit
