IAEA Travel Grant:
The IAEA offers a limited number of travel grants which contribute to meeting the grantee’s travel and accommodation expenses. The grants aim to stimulate the attendance of selected professionals in the research reactor community who would have difficulties attending RERTR 2008 without this assistance. The IAEA invites particularly young people to apply for a travel grant. The criteria for selection are:

  • The candidate must be a national from an IAEA Member State eligible to receive assistance under the Agency’s Technical Co-operation Programme;
  • The candidate must present an oral paper or poster accepted by the Programme Committee
  • Priority will go to first-time applicants

If you are interested in a travel grant, please fill in the Grant Application Form below, make sure it is properly endorsed by a competent authority in your organization/government and send it back via your official National authority (Ministry of Foreign Affaires or National Atomic Energy Authority) to the

International Atomic Energy Agency
Vienna International Centre
Wagramer Strasse 5
P.O. Box 100
A-1400 Vienna

This form should be returned through the official liaison offices with the IAEA by 15 August 2008 at the very latest. To start the procedure in due time (sending it through the post may take some time) you may anticipate the form (properly endorsed by a competent authority in your organization/government) by fax (+43 1 26007) or by e-mail ([email protected]).
