Please note that at some locations the Fellowship Roadshow will be followed by a Catalyst Roadshow. This will provide an overview of funding opportunities for international research collaboration available through Catalyst: Seeding and Catalyst: Leaders. The Roadshow will also discuss the most common reasons for why a Catalyst Seeding proposal does not score well.

Last but not least, the Catalyst Roadshow will also discuss funding opportunities available through the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP).

Times and venues for the Catalyst Roadshow are available from here.
