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 EUR as currency). Please try to find cheap flights and consider that the price goes up when you come closer to your departure date. W will assess the reasonability of estimated costs.

  3. If you receive travel support you are obliged to participate in a post conference internet based survey conducted by the Globelics Secretariat. The purpose of the survey is to collect information in order to evaluate and improve the activities of the Globelics community.
