About this opportunity

We have grants for early career researchers (see Eligibility section) to attend a workshop in Mexico entitled 'Technological Solutions to Combat Risks of Climate Change in the Water Sector'.

Under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council Researcher Links scheme we will be holding a workshop on the above theme at the Universidad de Las Américas, Puebla, Mexico on the 28-30 January 2015. The workshop is being coordinated by Dr Morgan Adams and Prof Erick R. Bandala, and will have contributions from other leading researchers.

Selected papers presented in the workshop will be considered for a Special Issue of the Physics and Chemistry of the Earth Journal devoted to Appropriate Technology and Climate Change Adaption in the Water Sector to be published in late 2015. 

Costs for the visa will be covered; however participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements. Although this cost will not be covered by the British Council, participants are encouraged to purchase an adequate travel and medical insurance.
