SMRI International Visitor Program 2023 Round 2 - Outcomes

SMRI International Visitor Program 2023 Round 2 - Outcomes 

I am happy to announce that there were 20 successful applicants in the SMRI
International Visitor Program round which closed in August 2023.  

Below is the list of these visitors, in order of their visit dates, which are quite
tentative in some cases.  

This scnews item will not be updated as visit information changes, so for the most
current information see the Visitor list on the SMRI webpage -  

As always, SMRI is grateful for the valuable contributions (financial and otherwise)
made by the hosts listed below, both inside and outside our School.  

The selections were made by the Scientific Advisory Committee of SMRI, listed on the
webpage -  The next IVP
application round will open in later this year, for visits taking place in 2025.
