The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) offered 2 grants of 300 (three-hundred) Euros to PhD STUDENTS in GEOMORHOLOGY from EUROPE (except UK) who were willing to take part in the BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop (Windsor, UK, 9-12 December 2013). PhD students at an early stage of their PhD programme have been encouraged to apply. The Workshop was organised by the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) and recognised by the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). The course provided PhD students with elements of training for research and with an opportunity to meet others at an early stage of their training when they were wrestling with the problems of research design etc. There have been sessions about starting research, designing research projects, methodological issues, modelling, fieldwork problems and remedies, presentations techniques, time management, and workshops for project organisation and discussion of individual projects.
