Bartje Lønøy, University of Bergen

‘Many thanks for the award. The Paul Milroy Award helped me attend the Bathurst Meeting 2019 and to present and discuss my Ph.D. work. The conference was a great opportunity to interact and establish a broad network with some of the best within the carbonate field.’


Nathan Rochelle-Bates, Manchester University

‘I just wanted to say that I had a great first Bathurst conference! I met a lot of the people working in my research area and had lots of really interesting discussions. The feedback is very useful and I will definitely apply some of the things that I learned when I write up my work for publication. I would not have been able to attend without the support from this award, so I am very grateful – thank you!’


Rosine Riera, University of Western Australia

‘As a recipient of the Paul Milroy Award, I would like to thank you for setting up this grant. Receiving this generous award helped me to cover the costs of travel from Perth (Australia), where I am doing my PhD, to Mallorca, where the Bathurst meeting where I presented the results of field-trip missions led in the Cape Range National Park, in Western Australia. Thank you again for your support’


Roberto Espejel, Cardiff University

‘Once again, I would like to thank everyone who was involved in the process of the Paul Milroy Award, especially to Paul’s family. The conference was really good, and the money that I was given really helped me with the travel expenses. I feel really special to have obtained this award.’


Dwi Amanda Utami, Aachen University

‘I would like to express my sincere gratitude of your generosity for giving me student support Paul Milroy Carbonate Award so that I can participate in Bathurst Meeting 2019. The meeting had given me so many opportunities to learn and grow especially through the discussion and feedback I received for my poster. I believe this is valuable for the improvement of my research.’


Andrea Tomassi, University of Rome

‘Thank you again for the support! The meeting was really interesting and was an important experience to listen to so skilled scientists to which I aspire to become! It was helpful and pleasant to meet and forge relationship with other colleagues with whom scientific relationships and friendship could arise in the future. I believe it is essential to attend these meeting events. A greater exchange of opinions can only have positive influences on the research of each one. Exchange of opinions and informations is the basis of the life of human beings as social animals: the opportunity given to me from the Foundation made possible the realization of our humanity through exchange of points of view on the study of what we love. Thank you very much for your consideration.’
