Section and Working Group Project Fund

IAMCR makes funds available to projects undertaken by its sections and working groups (S&WG). The objectives of the fund are:

  • Primary objective: Strengthen Section and Working Group activities outside the main IAMCR international conferences
  • Secondary objective 1: Enhance collaboration between IAMCR Sections and Working Groups in these non-main conference activities
  • Secondary objective 2: Increase the participation of IAMCR members in these non-main conference Section and Working Group activities

Examples of the types of projects able to receive funding include:

  • Section and Working Group publications (books and/or journals)
  • Section and Working Group events (workshops, small conferences, etc.)
  • Section and Working Group advocacy and outreach

Participatory Communication proposal funded by Section and Working Group Project Fund

The Participatory Communication Research (PCR) Section had a project accepted for funding by the Section and Working Group Project Fund.
