This scheme is open to lead authors who satisfy the same requirements as apply to the EMS Young Scientists Travel Awards (i.e. someone under 35 years of age on the first of January 2021, working and/or studying in a European country). The deadline for applications is 15 November 2020, 13:00 CET.
How to apply: Send an application letter that includes the submission number and is accompanied by the pdf of the submitted manuscript to ems-sec .at. emetsoc.org, no later than 15 November 2020, 13:00 CET.
Applicants need to include a statement that they have tried and failed to access funds to cover the page charges. If more than two applications are received, the EMS Bureau will make a decision on the selection, taking into account the views of the editors for the relevant topic.
