The International Epidemiological Association (IEA) – Western Pacific (W-P) Region and the Australasian Epidemiological Association (AEA), invite applications for the 2017 IEA—AEA Exchange Award.
The purpose of this Award is to share capacity and build collaborations between Australia/NZ and other countries in the region. Applications can be initiated by IEA or AEA members (including new members), and must involve a member from each Association, with one member based in a country outside of Australia or New Zealand.
The Australia or New Zealand based applicant must be a current AEA or IEA financial member. The applicant based in a W-P Region country outside of Australia/NZ must be a current IEA or AEA financial member (including new members). Voting members of the IEA and AEA Councils are not eligible to directly receive funds (but can serve as ‘hosts’).
The limited funds available are mainly intended to support or offset travel expenses, but any justified research-related expenses will be considered. Please see the attached application details. Two awards will be made this year.
Applications close Friday 10th March 2017, 5pm AEST (Aust Eastern Standard Time)
