We are happy to inform you that the CA18219 Geothermal-DHC Management Committee approved the installation of Virtual Mobility Grants. As announced in our previous network update on 23 July, these grants may offer you interesting opportunities to perform virtual activities. In Geothermal-DHC, we will allow for up to 6 grants, each funded by max EUR 1500.
We are now opening a call for Virtual Mobility Grants, which will close on September 10. Please note that you have to submit your Virtual Mobility Grant Application via the eCOST Tool. For more information on Virtual Mobility Grants please see the attached explanatory notes. A collection of relevant documents can also be found at our Own Cloud server at the following link. In case of specific questions, you may also contact our Grant Manager, my colleague Anna Bruestle (Anna-Katharina.Bruestle@geologie.ac.at).
In the framework of the new Virtual Mobility Support we are offering a professional training for moderating online workshops and meetings for up to 10 participants of our network. Priority will be given to PWG and Ad Hoc WG coordinators as well as to Early Career Investigators. The moderation training will consist of a 1 day (2 x 2 hours) training workshop on 13 September and a follow-up masterclass on 28 September (2 hours), where trainees will be invited to prepare a small project for an aimed or planned workshop. For more information please see the attached document.
We would like to encourage you to take this opportunity! In case Virtual Mobility Support activities will be prolonged in Grant Period 3 (November 2021 – October 2022) we will repeat this training and all candidates not selected this time will be on waiting list for follow-up trainings.
Please submit your application to the training before August 27 here: online form
