$700 Travel Award ICN 2017

SISN is delighted to announce that we are offering a Travel Award of 700USD to a student or early career SISN member to assist with the cost of attending ICN 2017, Buenos Aires.

SISN’s vision is a world where actions to improve nutrition are designed and implemented with the best available scientific knowledge and practical experience, and we’d like you to contribute towards that vision by sharing your ideas on the use of implementation research (IR) to address a key nutrition issue.

To be considered for the Travel Award we are asking you to share your thoughts in a brief video describing ‘how you would use IR to improve the design and implementation of iron-folate intervention during pregnancy in your country of residence’.

To help give you some background on our thinking on IR check out this webinar which will walk you through our recently launched Implementation Framework and provide examples of some existing research and how it fits into the SISN Classification Scheme.

We look forward to receiving your innovative thoughts by 2nd October. For full application details see below. The successful award winner will be selected and be granted the award before 15th October.

Dr David Pelletier

SISN President
