Congratulations to all the fellows and good work!

The goal of SCAR INSTANT fellowships is to increase the engagement of Early-Career Researchers in INSTANT activities and to promote participation of scientists from regions currently under-represented in INSTANT, i.e., South America, Asia and Africa.
INSTANT fellowships address the objectives and priority questions in INSTANT's Science and Implementation plan as well as the INSTANT structure revised in December 2021 (Themes 1&2 were merged into a unique Theme 1).
