Apply for travel grants or funds to cover partner meetings

Jan 20, 2020

Information about the possibility of applying for funds to cover partner meetings and meetings in smaller groups:

  • If a smaller group from the network wants meeting expenses covered (for example for bioinformatics meetings, KLEB-GAP related meetings, meetings to plan/write joint projects/applications etc.), a simple application must be sent to by e-mail to Iren Löhr (loih@sus.no), who will process the application in the steering group by e-mail or in a Skype meeting. This opportunity is available from the autumn 2020, as the first payments of funds from the NFR will cover costs in connection with the workshop in June 2020.
  • If steering group members apply for a grant themselves, they will be recused from the application assessment.
