Special information for ERC / MSCA Beneficiaries

If you are currently holding an ERC grant and you will present your grant at TRA 2018 as part of your dissemination activity, you may charge your travel, subsistence, accommodation costs, as well as the conference fees to your ERC grant, in line with the general cost eligibility criteria foreseen by the grant agreement.

If you currently hold an MSCA fellowship and would like to attend the event, you could ask your supervisor to provide funding from the contribution of the MSCA grant to research, training, and networking costs. This could be used to pay your travel, subsistence and accommodation costs and the conference fees
