Scientist Assistance Program - SAP

IUFRO’s Scientist Assistance Programme (SAP) aims to provide forest scientists from economically disadvantaged countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America with financial assistance to participate in the XXV IUFRO World Congress 2019, taking place in Curitiba, Brazil from 29 September to 5 October 2019.

Scientists from economically disadvantaged countries who are in one way or another involved in forest- and tree-related research and academic training programmes are eligible for support. Scientists from countries shown in the list below will be eligible to apply for sponsorship:

List of eligible countries:

The SAP is implemented by IUFRO’s Special Programme for Development of Capacities (SPDC) and is based on the following general policy guidelines:

  • Support is directed to those scientists who are contributing to the Congress and have an approved abstract either for oral or poster presentation;
  • Preference is given to early- and mid-career forest scientists (below the age of 46 years) who are in need of further developing their expertise and skills as a researcher;
  • Highest priority in providing sponsorship is given to forest scientists working in IUFRO member institutions, though scientists from other forest-related research institutions which are not IUFRO member institutions will also be supported depending on funding available; and
  • The selection of candidates will also be geared towards achieving both geographical and gender balance.

While applications from those who have received SAP support for past congresses are welcome, preference will be given to those who have not received funding previously.

Two types of sponsorship are available:

  • Full sponsorship covering airfare, accommodation, subsistence and Congress registration fee; or
  • Partial sponsorship covering airfare only.

Scientists with an approved abstract may submit their applications through a SAP application form available at the IUFRO-SPDC Congress SAP web page  starting 1 March 2019.
