ADVICE

  • You attach the acceptance letter for the workshop/course.
  • If you are a PhD student, your supervisor or the head of the research unit will be asked for a recommendation letter. In case of belated submission of this recommendation letter, the application for a travel grant will be declared ineligible.
  • Your application is submitted to the International Collaboration Committee (CIWC) that will decide on its approval or not.

SELECTION

  • Quality of the proposed workshop/course.
  • Intrinsic need/added value of the proposed research in relation to the research.
  • The added value of the contribution (invited talk) to the workshop/course in case a contribution is made.
  • Scientific performance of the applicant to date, taking into account the specificity of the area and his/her age.
  • If a choice has to be made: preference for young researchers to the extent that they already have at least one peer-reviewed publication.

EVALUATION
