This has been an unusual year (or has it been two?), and we are so excited at the prospect of holding BrANCH2021 at Warwick, and in person. The Covid situation remains ongoing and subject to change, so please be aware that it may not be possible to refund the full cost of the conference if travel restrictions are put in place from outside the UK. For those of us in the UK, if the government impose lockdown again, then we will be refunded.
Obviously we believe it to be a slight risk at this time.
Finally, we are pleased to introduce a childcare/carers bursary for postgraduates and ECRs with caring responsibilities. We welcome applications up to £230 to cover costs directly related to childcare/caring, including:
* additional day with registered childcare/care provider to allow attendance
* additional travel and hotel costs for additional caregiver (though not conference registration).
Grant funds are limited and preference will be given to programme participants. Please apply at the time of registration by emailing: email@example.com
