*Funding to attend the 2nd HEIRRI Conference*
The 2nd HEIRRI Conference Travel Grants are intended to help offset the costs of travel and accomodation to attendees. In order to be eligible to receive a grant participants must fulfil the selection criteria listed below:
a) Pilot projects
b) Abstract accepted. Priority will be given to participants who have an accepted abstract. The order of priority will be as follows: 1. Abstract accepted in parallel sessions, 2. Abstract accepted for the speed dating and 3. Abstract accepted for the poster sessions
c) Financial need confirmed by the participant (combined with criteria a and b)
d) Relevance of their research/ expertise to the topic of the conference
e) Excellence of their research/practice
g) Geographic coverage/Diversity/Inclusiveness
To ensure diversity just one grant will be awarded per abstract and per institution. If more than one author requests a grant, it will be decided on the basis of the order of the names. A maximum sum of 700€ will be reimbursed to European participants and 1000€ to non-European participants based on actual costs, after the supporting documentation has been provided. The maximum sum of the grant allocation (700€ or 1000€) will depend on the participants’ institution and on the country from which they will travel to Vienna, not on the participants’ nationality.
