Annual Meeting Travel Grants

Applications are now open for QuakeCoRE travel grants. Travel grants are available for current Associate Investigators (AIs) and Industry Affiliates that do not have travel funding from other QuakeCoRE sources.

Funding support is available for registered participants at the QuakeCoRE Annual Meeting to assist with childcare costs. This funding is available for researchers who are the main caregiver of a child under 5 years old and who, without this support, would not be able to attend the Annual Meeting.

Previous examples of support provided include:

  • Contribution towards the travel costs for a family member/ friend/ carer who provided childcare while the recipient attended the Annual Meeting
  • Contribution towards the cost of a local childcare service while the recipient attended the Annual Meeting

Early Career Researchers (ECR) Network  Mentoring Event

The Early Career Researchers (ECR) Network invites all early career researchers within QuakeCoRE community to a networking event to meet with ECR mentors and colleagues. The main purpose of this event is to launch a ECR mentoring programme. It is also an opportunity to meet with others and discuss collaborative / strategic opportunities available to ECRs in QuakeCoRE. There will be a short talk updating the group on the strategic and operational plans for the network. ECR mentors will be available for insights on a number of challenges ECRs might face such as how to maximise chances of success for QuakeCoRE RfP and EQC funding, how to establish international collaboration and how to recruit high quality PhD students.

You will be able to submit an Expression of Interest to attend this event during the registration process and places will be confirmed ahead of the Annual Meeting.

Women in QuakeCoRE Breakfast Event

The Women in QuakeCoRE Breakfast provides the opportunity for people who identify as women to discuss the particular challenges and opportunities they may be facing in their studies or careers with mentors who have experience navigating research areas in which women are typically underrepresented. This event will begin with brief speeches from mentors and then smaller group discussions led by a mentor over a light breakfast. This event is for all women involved with QuakeCoRE who feel that they would benefit from talking with someone who has lived experience of gender bias-related challenges in a research career. We are open to women at all career stages joining us for kai and kōrero, including students, ECRs, and mid- and later-career researchers.

You will be able to submit an Expression of Interest to attend this event during the registration process and places will be confirmed late July.

Contact QuakeCoRE if you have any questions about the Annual Meeting.
