The CAG Visiting Research Professorship is offered annually (though not awarded each year) to a member of CAG who is a proven teacher and an outstanding researcher. This award allows a member, who is an outstanding researcher, to visit six or more centres across the country. The CAG will support air travel and the host centres will be responsible for associated visit costs. The CAG Visiting Research Professor is available as a benefit to CAG members, largely in academic institutions. For information on scheduling a visit to your centre please contact Joanne Ardron (CAG National Office).
