As the funding available to support research and scoping projects is strictly limited, we would like to thank the many Society members and Scoping Award entrants for the time and care taken in putting together so many fascinating proposals.

We have provided constructive, individual feedback to all entrants whose proposals we were unable to fund, which will hopefully help refine these proposals and potentially find alternative sources of funding.
