The IGCP683 project is pleased to announce a possible funding opportunity for early career participants, with a preference for female participants, from NW Africa to attend “Halifax 2022“, an international geoscience conference to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, May 15-23, 2022.  The conference is organized by several geoscience organizations, led by the Geological Association of Canada.  It will include a symposium associated with the IGCP 683 project, and a post-meeting field trip, also part of the project. The grant will cover the air fare, the accommodation (May 14-18), the conference registration (~$500 CAD), and the field trip ($850 CAD – includes accommodation, transportation, breakfast and lunch). Awardees are expected to present their research at the meeting, and actively participate in the conference and field trip.
