What is the BioCop fellowship Scheme
The BioCop Fellowship Scheme was announced in 2005 and was founded by the BioCop consortium to allow BioCop's women researches to apply for an opportunity to spend up to two weeks at an institution or research centre of their choice for a study visit or a research related activity.
This is an annual event with the aim to raise scientific awareness of female researches and promote women's participation in Science.
