Special Covid-19:

The current pandemic of Sars-CoV-2 (Covid-19) is affecting many aspects of a researcher life at the moment: acces to the lab is restricted, there is now time to read all those papers that have piled up on our desks, to learn and teach ourselves new methods, to develop new ideas. Nevertheless, the most interesting conferences are either cancelled or moved to virtual settings, which implies renouncing to the great interactions and networking that LIMNA wishes to foster by the means of travel grants. Moreover, it is yet unclear if and how people will be able to travel and leave the country in the next months.

LIMNA Board of directors thus decided that next LIMNA travel grant calls (concerning conferences and meeting happening during second semester of 2020 and first semester of 2021) are reported. Stay tuned to check when next call will be open!
