ITC Conference Grants old

What and Why?

ITC grants help PhD students and early-career investigators from participating Inclusiveness Target Countries attend international science and technology related conferences that are not organised by a COST Action.


The applicant must be engaged in an official research programme as a PhD Student or postdoctoral fellow from Inclusiveness Target Countries. The applicant must make an oral/poster presentation at the conference in question.


ITC Conference grant applications for Action CA19130 are received through the e-COST platform in response to twice-a-year specific calls. The grantee should upload the scientific report within 30 days from the end of the mission.
