Transmitting Science started in 2012 to manage specialized courses and workshops. To date, they have run more than 135 advanced courses related to the life sciences. Courses and workshops are highly dynamic, always include practical sessions, and allow time for questions and interaction. Sharing scientific knowledge is their objective. New methodologies need to be learned, and new ideas must be shared and debated in order to advance science. Since 2016, Transmitting Science have also offered a range of services for researchers, including communication and outreach, event organisation, and partnership in European programmes.
Transmitting Science will be offering 20% off a Transmitting Science course for all delegates from the date of the meeting until the end of 2023. We thank Transmitting Science for their generous contribution to our community.
Winners of the Best Poster and Best Presentation Prizes (both for early-career researchers) will receive a free publication in any PeerJ journal (subject to peer-review), worth $1,395, as well as a feature on the PeerJ blog to discuss their research. We thank PeerJ for their continued support of SVPCA and our community.
