Funding opportunities

Dear colleagues,

Two sets of funding have become available that might be of interest, one regards the general conference later this year, another kick-off funding for those wishing to develop a grant proposal or joint teaching programmes.

  1. There is a bit of funding for those who would find it difficult to pay the participation fee for the general conference if it wasn’t for funding. The fees for this year are as below. If you wish to apply for funding, please drop me a quick mail with a rationale for your application and for which amount/type of registration you apply. I need to receive this no later than 17 June.
