Target group
  • Applicants must be 40 years of age or younger at the time of the meeting (born October 15, 1979 or later; add two years to age limit per child as main carer).
  • The grant must be applied for when submitting an abstract via the abstract submission portal.

How it works

Travel grants are awarded on the basis of scientific merit using the evaluation process of the Scientific Committee. Basic science Travel Grants must be supported by a letter signed by the Head of Department, including a summary of current research and how it relates to basic science. This letter is only required once the basic science Travel Grant has been approved.

Awardees are notified about the Travel Grant once their abstract has been accepted for presentation. The grant is paid via bank transfer after the congress. The presenting author needs to present a valid ID card or passport (for identification and age verification) at the Travel Grant counter, located in the registration area of the venue.
