The board of the AETE recognizes that presenting research at conferences is vital aspect of a student’s professional, educational and research development. Furthermore, student involvement in our conferences is fundamental to further develop our research community.
AETE Student Travel Grant will make a partial financial contribution to student presenters attending our annual international conference, subject to available funds. The number of available grants will be announced on February 15th each year. If awarded, the student will receive the bursary after the conference using electronic money transfer. The precise value will be specified, but up to a maximum of 250€ per awardee. The award can be used to cover costs associated with the travel, the hotel and the registration for our AETE conference.
