ESPCR Travel Awards


The European Society for Pigment Cell Research regularly provides a limited number of travel awards for attendance at ESPCR / IPCC meetings in the form of credit paid directly to Organizers to be used to waive some/most of the meeting attending costs for the selected awardees. Depending on the number of applicants selected and the funds available, awards may cover conference registration, gala dinner, some/most support for accommodation, and, in some cases, it may also travel (economy class return air, rail fare or car fuel costs). Awards will be made by the ESPCR Travel Awards Committee on a competitive basis and will be primarily meant for students/MD trainees/young postdocs that are ESPCR members and will be presenting their work at the meeting in the form of a Poster or a talk.
