The outcome of the ESERA Early Career Researcher Travel Award for 2015: The students who have been offered, and have accepted, an ESERA ECR Travel Award for 2015.
Every year ESERA arranges travel awards, of between 500 and 1000 euros each, to enable people who are currently enrolled in doctoral studies or who were awarded their doctorate in the past three years to travel to research venues. The awards are intended to enable early career ESERA members to visit more experienced science education researchers in other countries. The awards are designed for researchers to share existing expertise in order to resolve an issue of concern in an awardee’s work or to otherwise advance their research efforts. The awards can be used to pay for travel, accommodation and subsistence. They are competitive and applications are judged by a panel, including ESERA Executive Board members, on the basis of the following criteria:
- clarity of intended outcome;
- feasibility of intended outcome;
- likely contribution to professional development of applicant.
The following students have been offered, and have accepted, an ESERA ECR Travel Award for 2015.
