UGR Fellowships

The theme of ASLO meeting in Granada is “Aquatic Sciences: Global and Regional Perspectives– North Meets South.” Meeting organizers encouraged special sessions on global and regional patterns of aquatic systems in diverse northern and southern inland water biomes as well as oceanographic provinces. In order to promote the participation of Latin American, African and Middle Eastern aquatic scientists, usually underrepresented at the ASLO meetings, The University of Granada (Universidad de Granada) offered fellowships to young scientists from these regions who are attending the ASLO 2015 meeting.
