Sparrho is a personalised science research discovery and recommendation platform allowing users to discover, curate and share research articles. Earlier this year, Sparrho started offering travel grants for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers through its Early Career Researcher Prize. The prize offers early career researchers the chance to win £500 towards attending a conference of their choice anywhere in the world. Each month, Sparrho chooses the best pinboards created by researchers on its website about an aspect of their current research. To be in the running, the pinboards must demonstrate skillful and engaging communication of complex scientific concepts, as well as an enthusiasm for science and its applications.
