Announcement: Approved New and Continuing Projects for Financial Year 2013/14

On behalf of the APN Inter-Governmental Meeting (IGM), the decision-making body for all of the APN activities, the APN Secretariat is pleased to announce that funding for the following proposals and continuing projects has been approved by the IGM for financial year 2013/14, on the advice received from the APN’s Scientific Planning Group (SPG). This year’s awards were approved on 12 April 2013 at the 18thIGM convened in Kobe, Japan.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate successful proponents.  We also thank all proponents for their continued interest in, and support of, the APN and its activities.
