HGM2020 international travel award

As in previous years we are already offering a heavily discounted registration rate for attendees from low income countries. To further support equity, the HGM2020 international travel award aims to provide financial support to researchers from Low and Lower Middle Income Countries (LMIC) who would not otherwise be able to attend the meeting.

*We are currently looking for named sponsors to support this award
