Grants for Seminar and Conferences
The Scheme provides financial assistance for presenting research paper or chairing a session as also delivering lectures in an international scientific event (Conference/ Seminar/ Symposia/ Workshops) to Non-ICMR Bio-medical Scientists. The theme of the event should be related to the thrust areas/ activities of ICMR. In addition, support is also provided to young scientists (age limit 35 years as on date of event), nurses and paramedical staff for attending training programmes and short- term Schools/ Workshops/ Courses on the basis of the priority areas already defined. Full economy class air fare by shortest route, airport tax and visa fees are provided under the scheme and Registration fee for young scientists too. Senior scientists (above 35 years of age) working in academic institutions and research laboratories are eligible to apply only to international scientific events which are not sponsored by International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU). Young scientists are, however, considered for support even for ICSU sponsored events.
