Travel grants to young researchers to attend ESOF-2012

Travel grants will be offered to young researchers, who wish to attend ESOF 2012 at Dublin from 11th to 15th July, 2012. ESOF, Euroscience Open Forum is the biennial pan-European meeting incorporated by Euroscience dedicated to scientific research and innovation.

Different organizations, including the Swiss Embassy in Ireland, the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Swedish Research Council (VR), the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation (DASTI) and the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) offer travel grants to enable young researchers who wish to attend ESOF2012. The event will bring together over 5,000 scientists; senior EU and government officials; business leaders; and international scientific media to discuss the best of European science and to address all of the current important global scientific challenges, including Energy, Climate Change, Food and Health. Our themes span “Food Security” to “The Life and Death of the Universe”.

The active participation of young researchers, in the early stages of their careers, in ESOF is a major contributor to the success of the meetings. Their presence greatly enriches the Scientific Programme, and a parallel Careers Programme addresses many of their particular interests and concerns.

ESOF offers young researchers with a golden opportunity to interact with eminent scientists from different scientific fields. With up to 1,000 young researchers throughout Europe and beyond, ESOF2012 will give them the unique opportunity to expand their networks of international contacts and to establish significant links with potential collaborators.

A special programme is dedicated to young researchers – the Careers Programme. With the help of practical sessions, panel discussions, presentations, debates and networking events, the Career Programme will publicize the opportunities open to young and mid-career researchers in Europe and throughout the world.
The deadline for applications for travel grants is Thursday 10th May 2012
