Oxford has been invited to nominate up to 5 bright young scientists to participate in the 2016 Global Young Scientists Summit, to be held from the 17th – 22nd of January 2016 in Singapore. This is the fourth held Summit, which sees around 300 young scientists from around the world come together with globally-recognised scientific leaders to discuss the latest advances in science and technology, and how research and innovation can be harnessed to address major global challenges.
The Summit provides a platform for these young researchers to connect and engage with like-minded peers from all over the world and build up a global research network. An integral part of GYSS@one-north is the Singapore Challenge, which enables participants with a compelling research proposition to take steps to exploit their research. Hospitality for the participants in Singapore will be provided, which will include accommodation, summit conference costs, social activities, meals and local transportation between accommodation, conference sites and social activities (yet excluding flights which are to be covered by department).
To be eligible, the nominee must be:
– Under the age of 35
– Be a Dphil or Post-Doc
The Expression of Interest Form for internal submission, the details of selection criteria used by the summit organisers and details of the Singapore challenge 2016 are available on the Research Services co-ordinated bids website.
As only 5 young scientists can be nominated by Oxford, all EOIs must be submitted internally for selection. Completed EOI’s, plus supporting documentation, should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Friday 28th August 2015 where they will be ranked then passed on to Keri Dexter for assessment across the division.
