FuturiZe will bring around 150 stakeholders to LxAddictions19: including bursaries for 120 professionals from a variety of sectors, who would otherwise not be able to attend the Lisbon conference; and 30 expert speakers to introduce the topics of the future scenarios from a number of viewpoints.
The application period is not yet open. If you would like to receive updates on the FZ bursaries (and participatory process), please fill in your e-mail address and give consent at the bottom of this page.
FuturiZe bursaries (scope and award criteria)
The FZ bursaries will support around 120 participants in their travel, accommodation, and participation fee to attend LxAddictions19 and participate in the debates (with different elements covered depending on their varying levels of need).
The bursaries will be awarded with the following criteria in mind:
- Scientific/professional excellence: The scope and achievements of the academic and/or professional practice of the applicant in accordance with their career stage (even at early stages) and the opportunities afforded by their sector and/or home country context.
- Geographic scope: Applications will be eligible from EU members and candidate countries, Russia, countries of the European Neighbourhood Policy framework, and other countries collaborating with EU countries on addiction policy issues.
- Under-resourced background: Applicants from lower income (GDP less than 90% of the EU average), less research intensive countries, and stakeholder sectors with scarce resources to fund their attendance at such events will be prioritised for funding if they fulfil the criteria for relevance, scope and achievements of academic and/or professional career and practice.
- Engagement in LxAddictions19: Active engagement in the conference will be prioritised and can be indicated, through the submission of an abstract to present at LxAddictions19 (in line with the requirements of scientific quality and formats of proposals), irrespective of whether the submission is accepted.
The selection process will aim to ensure balance in stakeholder profiles, gender, career stage and geography, as far as is possible.
