Support MA and PhD Students in their careers

Support MA and PhD Students in their careers
SPACE launched its academic and professional journey in 2017 in the fields including but not limited to the architecture, urban design, planning, city management, and interconnection of design and other forms of arts. Within this extensive spectrum of subject areas, SPACE aims to create a sharing-and-developing platform of knowledge by running international conferences, workshops, exhibitions, lectures, seminars and most recently via the "SPACE International Journal of Space Studies in Architecture and Urban Design". In the one-year horizon, SPACE will initiate the book publishing and accepting book proposals is due in Mid 2021. Furthermore, negotiations on international research projects, particularly collaborative partnerships, are in progress between SPACE and fellow companies worldwide.

Amid all efforts to develop the research platform of SPACE, however, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected a significant proportion of international contributions in the conferences. The opportunity of engaging younger generations, specifically the MA/PhD students or early-career researchers, by submitting papers or posters has decreased with an unprecedented scale. The point is more intense in some non-European countries such as the Middle East. The reason is that many universities in non-European countries do not fully approve the online conferences and thus refuse to support the students financially. In short, the financial crisis in the pandemic world, on the one hand, and the lack of sufficient support by many universities/research organisations, on the other hand, has resulted in the drastic fall in the number of paper/poster submissions in our online conferences.

To move towards a proactive approach to encourage more participation, SPACE has omitted all benefits, minimised the registration fees for conferences, and added the possible discounts wherever possible for authors with particular circumstances. Within a moral discipline to respect authors' dignity with financial difficulties, particularly in the COVID-19 world, all these actions were discreetly done and not publicly announced on our website. Besides, these sets of steps should only suffice to cover all the required fees through a more robust international breakthrough, such as the support of sponsors or donors.

So, we need your help to support MA and PhD students.

All donations will be used to support MA and PhD students to cover their registration fees and cover the paper publication fees, including expenses such as proofreading and editing services for publication in our all conferences (online and on-site) and our events.
As a gesture of appreciation to donors:
1) £20 earns you a one-year membership
2) £50 gets you a voucher worth £20 to be used on our online shop plus a one-year membership
3) £100 earns you a voucher worth £40 to be used on our online shop plus a two-year membership
4) £500 gets you a voucher worth £200 to be used on our online shop plus a five-year membership
As a final word, the success in reaching the climax amount in fundraising would be SPACE's most outstanding achievement in the pathway of accomplishing equity, particularly for those with exceptional financial circumstances and for those whose countries do not support academic events economically, especially conferences either online or on-site.
