Event 2007 UKRO Annual Conference

Each year the UK Research Office organises a two-day Annual Conference aimed primarily at European Research Liaison Officers. This year, the conference will be held at Imperial College, London on 5th and 6th July 2007.  The conference will have a strong focus on FP7.

African Water will sponsor two representatives from African research organisations to attend the 2007 conference. African Water will cover travel and subsistence costs (economy airfares and train travel, and UK government subsistence rates), plus registration fees for the conference.

Nominated representatives should not be researchers, but should be European Research Liaison Officers, Research Managers or Administrators, Fundraising or Policy Support personnel. The Conference provides an excellent forum for discussion and networking with key speakers from the European Institutions on a wide range of EU policies and funding opportunities.

To apply please complete the attached form and submit by email to African Water.  The closing date for applications is 30 April 2007.  The two successful applicants will be informed by 11 May 2007 and asked to confirm in writing that they will attend.

Please note that failing to secure sponsorship from African Water does not preclude you from attending the conference with your own funding.  Details of the conference programme and registration facility will be added to the African Water website as soon as they are available.
