VIB’s aim with the conference series is to showcase cutting edge research by leading scientists and to make the presentations and discussions accessible for all scientists. In this regard VIB conferences would like to introduce travel grants to international researchers for conferences from 2020 onward.
How to apply for a travel grant
To apply for a grant, submit your motivation by clicking on the 'Apply here' button on the website of the conference of your choice. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance before the abstract submission deadline. No registration is needed before submitting a travel grant proposal. When you’re awarded with a travel grant you will receive a practical email containing the next steps. Note that being awarded a travel grant does not mean being registered for the conference.
