Apply for a conference funding

Every year, BioConvS supports events in Île-de-France around its thematics (bioproduction, biotherapy, synthetic biology) as well as scientific communication events, or events who catalyse the interactions between the private and public sector in biotechnologies.

You can apply to get a BioConvS sponsorship under the following criteria:

  • You are a public institution or a no-profit association
  • Your event is located in Île-de-France
  • For a scientific event: the thematics of the event fall in the perimeter of BioConvS actions
  • For a science communication event or action: your event promotes one of the BioConvS’ thematics to the general public, or your action includes researchers affiliated to BioConvS
  • Your event promotes innovation in one of the thematics of BioConvS
  • Your event supports the career or training of scientists who work on the thematics of BioConvS
  • You can apply for a grant of up to 1000€

Applications will be submitted to the vote of our Executive Committee who gathers on average once a month, so please plan in advance if you want to apply. You will be subsequently notified if your application was successful or not. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, until yearly funds are exhausted.

Funded events are asked, besides adding the BioConvS logo to their communication material, to discuss with our team the best way to integrate the BioConvS community in their action.

Tell us about your event, place and dates, how it fits within BioConvS’ scope, and the amount of funding you apply for.

You agree to receive email communication from us by submitting this form and understand that your contact information will be stored with us.
