PAGES-IAI Webinar: Networks on past global change research in Latin America and the Caribbean
In 2021 PAGES and the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) announced the International Mobility Research Fellowship Program for Latin American and Caribbean early-career scientists on past global changes.
The program, funded by PAGES, aims to contribute to the development of collaborative research and the promotion of paleoscience networks in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The fellowship supports Latin American and Caribbean early-career scientists pursuing international research experience in paleoscience and is intended to support costs associated with international travel and living expenses while abroad (airfares, visas, health/travel insurance, and subsistence costs for the fellow only).
Since the launch of the fellowship in 2021, the program has enabled ten recipients to make an exchange within Latin America and/or the Caribbean:
