Travel Award to spend 2-4 months on Bali while also attending Open Science Meetup Bali 2018
Application deadline: March 12, 2018 (closed for applications)
Letters of notification: No later than March 14, 2018
A second call will be made should there still be funds available to cover additional awards.
Spend 2-4 months working remotely on your own research from our coworking space on Bali, Indonesia. The stay must include the dates 23-29 April, 2018, to allow the recipient to attend the Open Science Meetup Bali 2018. The award covers the costs of travel to and from Bali, accommodation in Ubud during 2-4 months and full access to the coworking space during the whole period.
We encourage scientists and students to also bring their families to Ubud. The award does not cover travel and accommodation for family members, however, we are happy to arrange accommodation suitable also for families and the recipient would pay only for the difference. IGDORE can also assist recipients in finding suitable school or daycare options for their children. IGDORE’s coworking space is open to everyone regardless of profession and will host family friendly after works on a weekly basis.
Eligible for this Travel Award are scientists and students who have a proven commitment to open scientific practices. It will be considered an advantage to already have published scientific papers on metascience and transparent science.

- Academic title
