The proposals are expected to outline activities planned by individual national societies or federations to promote and foster gender equality. The awards are meant as seed money for such activities with the expectation that they will continue under new funding. The awards will be announced at the 18th International Congress of Immunology (IUIS 2023) in Cape Town, South Africa.
