  • Student prizes: Outstanding achievements by young researchers should be honoured. Award a prize for best poster or best abstract or best project/group work.
  • Travel grants: Enable selected participants to attend our events by sponsoring travel grants to cover their expenses.

 

Your sponsorship package will be individually compiled including some or all of the items above. Please feel free to contact us for individual offers for your company.
