ITC Conference Grants

ITC Conference Grants

Inclusiveness Target Countries Conference Grants

One of the main elements of COST inclusiveness policy is the geographical spread, which targets less research-intensive COST Members, such as: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Republic of North Macedonia, Republic of Serbia and Turkey.

Inclusive Target Countries (ITCs) Conference Grants are intended to promote the participation of PhD students and early-career-investigators, affiliated to an institution in a ITC, to international conferences and workshops that are not directly organized by any COST Action. More specifically, the applicant must make an oral or poster presentation at the conference of interest, and their name must appear in the official event program.
