Support is provided through the departmental staff development budget to academic staff to attend one conference per year, with requests assessed on a case by case basis.
In addition, small awards (of up to £150) are available to academic, research active staff and those in appropriate support or administrative posts, to help support the extra child-care costs associated with attending conferences.
This fund has been established in recognition that while conference attendance is important both for individuals and for the wider Warwick community, it invariably involves making extra child-care arrangements for those with young children.
Claims are limited to one per trip, and only two per person per academic year. More details can be found here.
