Dear Member

There are exciting opportunities for our community in the numerous funding schemes that are currently open, including PHYCONETERA-IB  and the IB Catalyst (see below and our funding section for further details). Our team will be happy to help you identify and apply for the most appropriate funding to take your ideas forward.
