Hat Yai, Thailand, 20 November 2018
EURASTiP is delighted to announce that the third round of funded exchange bursaries has today been launched at the 8thIFS Conference (International Fisheries Symposium) in Hat Yai, Thailand.
This call follows on the back of two highly successful rounds of funding; to date EURASTiP having provided 36 bursaries (totalling some €108,000) for a range of exchange opportunities across the aquaculture education, industry and research sectors.
The range of applications to date has been immense – both in terms of geographical reach and subject area of topic – and the independent selection committee (comprising an expert panel drawn from both Europe and se-Asia, also adhering to the EURASTiP commitment for gender balance) has been extremely impressed by the quality and originality of applications.
Project partners have also been impressed at the use of online promotion tools for successful exchange programme applciations, using social media tools such as Twitter along with TED talks, vlogs and blogs.
With only a further 14 bursaries available, we encourage you to start putting your proposal together now! The closing date for the third round of applications is 27 January 2019. Further details are available via www.eurastip.eu/exchanges
