In past years, individual conference participants were able to apply for a Grundtvig Grant to cover costs for the Ecsite Annual Conference. This Grundtvig Grant no longer exists – it has been incorporated into the new Erasmus+ funding model.

What does this mean to you?

  • No funds are available for the the Ecsite Annual Conference 2014
  • For future conferences, only institutions can apply for funds, not individual participants. As an individual participant, you must ask your institution for an application.
