Travel Grants

The 47th annual symposium will be held in the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, on 13-19 July 2020, with the general theme A History of Technology for an Age of Crisis. We offer a limited number of grants to help defray some of the expenses of attending the symposium. The Grants will be made available largely thanks to a generous support from the Juanelo Turriano Foundation and the Division of History of Science and Technology (DHST).

 Who is eligible?

In 2020, the ICOHTEC Travel Grants will be awarded in two categories:

Up to 350 Euro each – eligible for applying are graduates, post-graduates and young scholars whose papers have been accepted for the scientific programme of our 2020 Symposium. Special preference will be given to participants from low-income countries, who are not able to receive sufficient financial support elsewhere. These travel grants are not intended to cover the full costs of attending the Symposium, and may be used to bus/train/ferry/flight tickets, lodging and/or registration fee.

Up to 200 Euro each – eligible for applying are the students and early career researchers participating in the ICOHTEC Summer School in Eindhoven. Students and researchers, whose papers have also been accepted for the scientific programme of our 2020 Symposium, following immediately the Summer School, are eligible for the Travel Grant of up to 350 Euro each.

How do I apply?

 The Travel Grant Application Form must be filled in, and sent by 5 April 2020 as an e-mail attachment to our vice-president and Chair of the Travel Grant Committee Yoel Bergmanyoelb062@gmail.com. In addition to the information provided in the application form, please attach a short CV or bio, as well as an appropriate document proving your status (a scan of your student’s ID or supervisor’s/professor’s letter if applicable). The reimbursement will be made after the accepted paper is presented in person by the Grantee at the Symposium. Please, note that all money transfers can be made only after the symposium. In addition, make sure you will save your original tickets and invoices to hand them over to the Treasurer at the meeting.

 What is the time schedule?

 The completed applications, along with applicable attachments, should be submitted by e-mail by Monday 5 April. The grants will be announced by mid-May 2020.
