In light of the growing concerns around COVID-19, CÚRAM Centre for Research in Medical Devices, Galway Film Centre and Precision Oncology Ireland (POI) have made the decision to extend the Science on Screen 2020 application deadline and put in place mandatory procedures for approaching contributors.
The deadline for application has now been extended to Wednesday 15th April 2020 at 2pm. In relation to approaching contributors, applicants must request a phone or video call meeting only. For the health and safety of all parties you are not permitted to meet potential contributors in person. Due to these new procedures it is acceptable at application stage to have identified potential contributors only, it is not necessary to have contributors attached to the project. Instead shortlisted applicants will be given a period of time in which to confirm their contributors participation before they interview for the Scheme. Please note that the interview date of the 1st of May is no longer valid.
We are monitoring the situation as it progresses and will post any updates online.
