Global Research Council Seeking Hosts for 2024 Regional Meetings

Global Research Council (GRC) participant organisations are invited to submit bids to host Regional Meetings of the Global Research Council in 2024. Regional Meetings are anticipated in:

  •  Americas
  •  Asia Pacific
  •  Europe
  •  Middle East/North Africa
  •  Sub-Saharan Africa

Interested organisations should submit their bid to grc@fapesp.br by no later than 21 February 2024.

All organisations submitting bids should have participated in previous Global Research Council Meetings. For each Regional Meeting, it is anticipated that there will be a host Research Council and a co-host Research Council. The hosts and co-host organisations for each Regional Meeting will each nominate one individual to serve on the 2024-2025 GRC International Steering Committee that will be charged with coordinating the hosting of the Regional Meetings and supporting the development of the agendas for the GRC Regional Meetings and the 13th Annual Meeting. The GRC Regional Meetings are expected to take place between October and November 2024.

The bid should include the following information:

  • A completed Application Form (attached);
  • A short (maximum 5 pages) narrative in support of the application.

Co-hosts are also expected to cover the full local costs associated with hosting and arranging the Regional Meeting. Travel and accommodations costs are covered by the participants.

The GRC Governing Board will consider all bids and announce the hosts of the 2024 Regional Meetings at the GRC’s 12th Annual Meeting in May 2024. The GRC Executive Support Group will assist all hosts in planning for the Regional Meetings.

Questions regarding the selection process may be sent to the Executive Secretariat team at grc@fapesp.br.
