Funding SUpport available for #AARE2021 CONFERENCE HUBS
To support local opportunities for research sharing, networking and collaboration, the AARE2021 Conference team is delighted to offer funding to support face-to-face AARE2021 Conference Hubs across Australia.
Funding support can be used to offset the costs of catering, such as morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea during the main conference program or to support catering at a face-to-face networking event hosted at the Conference Hub.
Please note that AARE2021 Conference Hub funding support is limited to $20 per delegate. Funding support is not intended to cover the entire cost of catering, but to subsidise opportunities for AARE2021 delegates to come together in different locations around Australia. Please note, while delegates may attend multiple hubs, the $20 funding support can only be provided to a single hub per delegate. Hub hosts will be asked to provide a list of confirmed delegates prior to the conference to secure Hub funding.
The kinds of activities that Hubs might undertake could include:
- One-day full face-to-face conference participation, including group connections to plenary sessions, plus breakout rooms for concurrent sessions. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea catering provided with the support of the Hub funding, with delegates paying the difference.
- An evening networking session, following the final programmed conference session, with catering support from Hub funding, with delegates paying for drinks.
- An afternoon block of activities that run concurrently to the online conference program, with catering support from Hub funding and delegates paying any difference.
To apply for funding support, there will need to be a minimum of two nominated Hub Hosts, who take responsibility for organising local room bookings, catering, access and promotion of the Hub to delegates.
Please complete the online form to express your intention to apply for Hub funding by Friday 15 October.
Payment of AARE2021 Conference Hub funding will be made via bank transfer to a nominated account following confirmation of Hub attendee numbers and expenses. For catered events, this can be arranged prior to the conference upon receipt of catering invoice/s and confirmed delegate list. Alternatively, Hub funding will be paid via reimbursement following the conference conclusion.
