As Covid-19 continues to impose restrictions on travel and organisation of events, the scientific community cannot afford losing the enthusiasm and precious value of a generation of young researchers in attending schools and contributing to conferences. The Communications journals have then redesigned their travel grant awards, as part of our commitment to support the achievements and skills development of Early Career Researchers. This year awards will be offered in the form of training grants, with the aim of supporting promising researchers in financial need by helping them attend a training course or workshop, either online or in person. If you want to learn more about this opportunity, please read this post from Communications Earth & Environment editor Joe Aslin, or visit the Training Grants for Early Career Researchers homepage. The deadline for applications is 26th October 2020. Please share this opportunity among your colleagues, PhD students and postdocs.
