Funding for events and meetings


Deadline: 1 march 2017

SEB Members are invited to submit proposals and funding requests to organise sessions at the SEB 2018 Annual Meeting taking place from 3-6 July 2018 in Florence, Italy. Your proposal and funding request will be submitted to the relevant SEB Section (animal, plant, cell).

The SEB Annual Meeting takes place over 4 days and a total of 72 half day sessions are being organised for the duration of the meeting.

For each half day session organised free registration is offered by SEB for one keynote and  one invited speaker, as well as up to £500 travel towards travel costs for the keynote speaker.

Session Topics

The sessions will cover animal, plant and cell biology, as well as educational topics within the umbrella of our SEB+ Section. Session proposals are accepted for Animal, Plant and Cell Biology topics.

  • Plant and Cell Biology Session proposals: Proposals for Plant and Cell Biology can be submitted openly.
  • Animal Biology Session Proposals: For our 2018 Meeting the Animal Section will be running three themes. Session proposals will therefore need to be sumitted for topics within these three themes only.
