Applicants must be an AIB Labs facility manager or an AIB Labs employee nominated by a facility manager.

Successful applicants to the FMMP Subsidy Scheme will receive a funding contribution towards the cost of registration for an approved professional development course.

The Scheme will cover courses relating to the topics listed in the 2013 FMMP survey.

Applications must be received BEFORE the course(s) take place.

The course(s) must commence BEFORE 30 June 2014.

Nominated courses will be assessed on a case by case basis for suitability for funding.

The amount of subsidy will depend on the overall demand for the Scheme.

Travel and accommodation costs associated with any course will not be funded.

Successful applicants will be required to submit a written evaluation of the attended course to the AIB Labs manager and, if requested, to provide feedback to other AIB Labs facility managers at a future FMMP session.

Details of funds awarded, courses attended and fund recipients’ names may be published by the AIB Labs manager in internal communications to the AIB Labs Steering Committee and BioSA.
