  • The reimbursement procedure starts AFTER the conference.

  • We cannot refund costs larger than the amount you are granted.

  • We cannot refund costs larger than the documented costs, which mean that we need original tickets and receipts after the conference.

History shows that the number of applicants is proportionally larger than our resources to travel support so please try to look for other sources of finance that can fully or partly finance your travel. We expect to receive many applications and since our funds for travel support is limited applicants should not expect a 100 % funding.

If you are eligible for - and wish to apply for travel support please read the application procedure described below.

  1. Before you start the online application process, please estimate your expected travel costs (i.e. the amount you apply for). We suggest that you contact a travel agency to get a ticket price (please use US$ as currency). Please try to find cheap flights. We will assess the reasonability of estimated costs

  2. Once we have received your application it will be processed and we will inform you whether or not we can support you. If we choose to support your application you will receive an email with instructions about the reimbursement procedure in due time.
