Are you planning a series of conferences or workshops on a related theme?

The Conferences Committee of the BSHS invites proposals for its Strategic Conference Grants Scheme. This scheme offers funds to a maximum of £750 for three meetings to take place over three consecutive years. The three conferences, workshops or symposia should have a shared focus or theme that relates to the history and philosophy of science, technology or medicine. Applications that can provide evidence that matching funding will be provided from other funders or host departments and include plans to maintain the longer-term sustainability of networks will be looked upon more favourably.

Proposals should include:

  1. Names, institutional affiliations, and contact details of organizer(s)
  2. Title of meeting(s)
  3. Purpose of meeting(s)
  4. Venue(s)
  5. Anticipated dates of meetings
  6. Number and type of participants (bearing in mind that BSHS events should be ‘open’ and encourage participation from early career scholars)
  7. Outline of programme(s)
  8. Breakdown of budget (indicating specifically how BSHS funds will be used)
  9. Anticipated legacy

Proposals for a series to commence in 2015 should be sent to the Conferences Committee ( by 15 March 2015.
