Inclusiveness Target Country (ITC) Conference Grants

What are ITC Conference Grants?

One of COST aims is enhancing research collaborations where ideas and people can grow without borders, conference grants are provided to expand the networking potential of the Action. ITC Conference Grants provide support for conference participation of PhD students and Early Career Investigators (ECI) researchers from participating ITCs to attend international science and technology related conferences not specifically organised by the COST Action. ITC Conference Grants are designed to reimburse costs of conferences attended by eligible Action participants.
