Awards are granted to individuals based on competitive criteria and enable successful candidates to contribute their experience towards strengthening the scientific research capacity of nations with smaller or less well-developed Antarctic research programmes. The ultimate goal of the scheme is to promote capacity building in the host institute and to develop long-term scientific links and partnerships leading to advances in Antarctic research.
The two winners for 2015 are:
John Turner (from UK, visiting India)
Robert Larter (from UK, visiting Norway)
Please join us in congratulating the awardees, and wishing them a fruitful visit to their host country!
