ITC conference grant second announcement!

stsm insideDear colleagues, 

Are you preparing a work for the ASH 2020 meeting? We are happy to announce that our COST Action can provide a Conference Grant as a fixed financial contribution to a PhD student or a PhD candidate, or Early Career Investigator (ECI) from one of the ITC countries

(i.e. Albania,Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic,Estonia, Hungary, the North Republic of Macedonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Republic of Moldova, Montenegro,Poland, Portugal,Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey).

You can send your work to ASH and if it is selected as an oral or poster presentation, your are eligible for the COST Conference Grant. The main subject of your presentation should be on the topic of the Action and should acknowledge COST (as seen in Section 10 of the Vademecum document).

Therefore, if you are planning to submit your work to ASH (deadline 4th August 2020), do NOT miss out on this opportunity to be selected for a grant to attend the meeting. Please be reminded that according to ASH "There will be an option to attend the meeting virtually, whether there is an in-person meeting component or not. ASH will continue to carefully monitor the situation and will announce a decision about the meeting format no later than September 30. Should the face-to-face conference not be possible, registered attendees will be given the option to cancel their registration for a full refund or convert it to registration for the virtual meeting." Therefore, in case of the ASH virtual meeting, our COST Action will be able to reimburse the registration fees, and following a MC decision, more than one ITC grantees could be able to benefit from this grant.

In the mean time, you can check the process in the attached ITC Conference Grant guide as well as the Vademecum Document (section 9)
