 You give an active contribution to the conference, meaning:

  • Your science abstract has been accepted for a presentation or a poster
  • You are a presenter, chair or facilitator in a science-practice or practice session
  • You have an active role in the business fair or project exhibition

There is no other organisation that can fund your participation
