Funding for Regional Meetings

The Chemistry Biology Interface Division is keen to offer financial support for regional meetings that identify new opportunities and challenges, promote discussion and collaboration in key areas of the chemistry biology interface, whilst aiming to enhance local research communities.

Meeting criteria

  • Showcase current leading-edge research at the interface 
  • Bring together biologists and chemists, as well as engineers and physicists from a region
  • No more than 50% of the delegates can be from the same institution
  • Flexible format – but must include networking time
  • Create new opportunities for learning, exchange of ideas and partnerships
  • Ensure titles for joint events are welcoming for those from both disciplines
  • Representatives from funding bodies and learned societies will be invited by RSC to co-badge
  • Provide an opportunity for a communication programme between funding bodies and research community to disseminate information on funding schemes    

If you are interested in running one of these meetings in your region, you can apply for a funding from the Chemistry Biology Interface Division with the Scientific Meetings Grant for Scientific Activities.
