ITP Conference Grant Awarded to Hesham Hamed (Egypt, ITP 2009), supporting attendance to the International Conference, “Perspectives on the Ramesside Military System”.

Hesham successfully applied for an ITP Conference Support Grant and will be taking part in the conference next month at the Institute for Egyptology and Coptic Studies at the University of Munich.

Hesham is the General Director of North and South Sinai excavation projects for the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in Egypt. Attending the international conference of “Perspectives on the Ramesside Military System” will be a fantastic opportunity for military and fortification experts to meet together and discuss important projects and to network with colleagues in the field.

We look forward to Hesham’s report and outputs, following the conference which will be posted on the blog.

In the past, the ITP has supported fellows from Zimbabwe, Egypt, India, Uganda and Armenia to attend or speak at conferences or carry out research and we would like to extend this offer to the entire network through open application, for conferences and professional research. Due to a very positive response this year, we are extending the budget for this legacy project. Each fellow can apply for up to 60% of the costs incurred by attending the conference or carrying out their research – up to a maximum of £1000. You can read more about the grants here.
