Call for Workshops 2017 / 2018


The vision of the AWRN is to foster enhanced collaboration and cohesion within the animal welfare research community, with a view to increasing successful grant-funded research and promoting the impact of outputs from research. As an important strand of its activities, the AWRN funds two or three workshops each year by means of an annual competitive call for AWRN members to bid for funds of up to £2,000 per workshop.

 The aims of the network, and of the workshops, are to stimulate discussion between members, including providing training and information exchange, and to provide the opportunity for interaction with relevant industry, researchers in other disciplines, and other stakeholders, to identify research gaps and potential future research areas. The workshops may provide a forum for discussion of research activities, engage with industry and other stakeholders regarding animal welfare research, enhance the development and training of researchers, support early career researchers, or undertake other activities that clearly further the aims of the network.

The call for workshops to be carried out in 2018 is now open and the deadline is June 30th 2017

We are particularly interested to hear from you if you have a proposal for a workshop focused on Early Career Researchers or with industry links; however all proposals will be considered by the Coordinating Group. 

Please note that applications will only be accepted from AWRN members and the lead PI must be based at a UK institution. Collaborative applications are encouraged. Please download the following form for more information about the workshops and the eligibility criteria (AWRN APPLICATION FOR WORKSHOP FUNDING).
