INCF Travel Grants are intended to benefit and facilitate Neuroinformatics collaborations and knowledge transfer between and within INCF member countries.
Instructions for applicants
- Software programmers and developers, graduate and post-doctoral students, researchers, and other academic staff involved in neuroinformatics research and development are eligible to apply. The applicant or the host has to be residing in an INCF member country.
- Awards may be sought for research visits to institutions or universities for the purpose of collaborative work or direct knowledge transfer.
- Travel Grants cannot support attendance at scientific meetings or symposia, unless active knowledge transfer can be clearly demonstrated (see below).
- Knowledge transfer implies the learning of specific techniques/methods to be implemented in the home institution following the visit. In addition, active dissemination of novel neuroinformatics approaches at the host institute or at specialized workshops and meetings as invited presenter may be supported.
- Travel and participation costs for attending neuroinformatics courses are from 2012 channeled through the INCF Training Committee.
- An individual may receive no more than one travel grant per calendar year.
- Expenses for economy airfare and accommodation will be covered (Subsistence allowances are not supported).
- Applications are typically for visits of 1-3 weeks, with an upper limit of 2 months.
- The INCF Secretariat expects a one-page report within two weeks of the completion of the travel. This report should review the scientific activities and outcomes of the trip. Full documentation of expenses (original receipts and expense claim form) should also be sent to the INCF Secretariat.
- Expenses are reimbursed, up to the agreed budget limit, following receipt of the full documentation.
- Applications are accepted continuously.
- Please allow up to 6 weeks for review of your application.
