Firstly, on behalf all the Outreach Evaluation Committee, I would like to thank all proposers for submitting a diverse range of exciting proposals to the initiative. We received 42 proposals for a total requested funding of over US$ 320K. Each proposal was carefully reviewed by the Committee. The 16 proposals listed below were judged most suitable for full or partial support and were awarded funding. Detailed additional feedback will be sent via email to all proposers in due course.
Unfortunately all funds allocated for the Outreach Initiative 2012 were allocated in this round (together with extra funding to support WiCAS/GoLD activities), so the next Call for Proposals for the Outreach Initiative is scheduled to open in the Fall (dates will be communicated on the website early in September 2012) for activities in 2013.
All successful proposers should immediately contact the CAS Executive Director, Ms. Heidi Zazza (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make arrangements for the funding transfer. Proposers should also make sure to send a report of their activities to myself and Heidi within 1 month from the end of the activity. All reports will be published on the CAS website at the end of the year.
