IFS actively engages with strategic partner organisations whose values and goals intersect with those of IFS. Below are some exciting upcoming events with IFS partners that we have lined up for the next few weeks.

IFS-OPCW Joint Workshop on Toxic chemicals in the environment: from understanding pollution and its impact to removal and verification techniques, November 25-26, 2020

IFS and the Organisation of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have been collaborating since 1998 and have since co-funded several research projects and have periodically organised joint regional capacity-building workshops for current and former IFS-OPCW grantees. The objectives of the 2020 online workshop are to highlight the careers of former grantees, provide a platform for them to share their experiences and views, facilitate networking between workshop participants which includes IFS-OPCW grantees, OPCW grantees, and senior scientists from around the world, and announce upcoming opportunities for available from IFS and OPCW. From this workshop, IFS and OPCW also hope to gain ideas on how to develop their partnership in the future. Read the IFS-OPCW Concept note here.

IFS will deliver a training workshop with Doane University, December 10, 2020

IFS is partnering with Professor Ramesh Laungani from Doane University, Nebraska to support women in science through the 1000 STEM Women Project, which was launched to increase the visibility of women role models by creating an extensive global video library of women scientists that can be used by schools all over the world. In this online workshop participants will learn how to tailor their communication to a non-scientific audience, as well as how to make their own video for the #1000STEMWomen Project. Participants include IFS women grantees who received a grant in the 2020 call. More information on the #1000STEMWomen project can be found here: https://1000stemwomen.wixsite.com/home/about
