ITC Conference Grants

Among its missions, the QG-MM Action wants to promote the work of young physicists in less research-intensive European countries (Inclusiveness Target Countries or ITC).

To fulfill that goal, the QG-MM Action will open calls for Conference Grant (CG) applications. A Conference Grant is a contribution to the overall travel, accommodation, meal expenses and conference registration expenses of the selected grantee. It is a fixed financial contribution which takes into consideration the budget request of the applicant and the outcome of the evaluation of the application by the QG-MM CG Committee.
