The Joint Nordic Conference on Development Research (NorDev) invites applications for travel grants to support participation at the 5th NorDev Conference hosted in Copenhagen 27-28 June 2019, Denmark. The conference is titled: ‘Knowledge Production in North-South Collaboration: Challenges in a New Era of Global Divides’ (see www.fau.dk )
A program panel will allocate the travel bursaries considering the strength of the proposed papers, including relevance vis-à-vis the conference theme and announced panels, and the delegates’ potential for future research excellence. Proposed papers, which already have been accepted for the conference, will be prioritized.
The travel bursary will cover the following types of expenses, including a waiver of the participants fee; a) costs of acquiring visas (local transport and the visa fee), b) air ticket, Economy Class, return, between the local airport and Copenhagen, c) lodging in Copenhagen at one of the lower priced hotels among the suggested conference hotels, d) local transport (to and from the local airport and between Copenhagen Airport and the hotel in Copenhagen). A maximum of DKK 12.000 can be applied for. We are particularly keen to support early career researchers who might not have access to other sources of travel funding. This grant has been made possible through funding from various Nordic Funding Agencies.
The rules and criteria are straightforward: ·
Notification on approval or rejection of the application will be given with in approximately two weeks after the submission deadline.
The funding will be given in advance of the event, where possible, in order to avoid colleagues having to take loans, etc. Consequently, if a delegate does not submit the proposed paper (deadline 3 June 2019) or does not attend the conference he/she may be asked to return the full sum, if the circumstances merit it. Receipts must be submitted for the funds, otherwise the money has to be returned. These are the conditions accepted when applying for these funds.
