Funding

Flights

Travel grants for students, postdocs, research assistants, invited speakers

Flights will be fully funded and will typically be booked through UCL's travel agent.  When your registration for the conference is approved by the organizers, you will receive an email with instructions on how to proceed to book flights.  

Please first check with your group lead before registering.  Because of space and funding limitations, only 2 junior members of a research group may attend the conference if the group lead funds his/her own flight.  If the group lead receives travel funding, then only 1 junior member may attend.  This does not apply to invited speakers or centrally funded MPRU students and postdocs.  Please contact the organizers to explain any exceptional circumstances.

Travel grants for group leaders

As travel funding is limited, group leads are encouraged to use their own grant funding to cover flight costs.  Group leads may apply for travel grants from the MPRU on the registration form.
