Day 2 of the ANTPAS workshop focused on intense and insightful group discussions and strategy meetings on the future role of ANTPAS and on how to allow ANTPAS to go from an Expert Group to a potential Research Program under SCAR. Results of these discussions will be made available soon, so watch this space!

HOW CAN ANTPAS HELP MY RESEARCH?

HOW CAN I LINK MY PROJECT WITH ANTPAS?
The Steering Committee is able to provide a letter of support to project proposals showing excellent quality and clearly linked to ANTPAS objectives. An abstract of the project, with clearly stated objectives, including the list of project researchers and the top 5 publications by the team should be sent to the Steering Committee for evaluation, so that a letter is prepared.

A reference to ANTPAS should be included in the acknowledgements in the papers to be published. If you are presenting at an ANTPAS-organised event or one that is affiliated with ANTPAS, or have received funding from ANTPAS to present your work at any event, please include the ANTPAS logo and SCAR logo in your presentation.
