Families welcome! To support the FENS 2018 attendance of ambitious young scientists with children, the FENS-Kavli Network will provide a limited number of childcare grants.
Successful applicants will receive 400 Euro which can be spent flexibly on extra childcare at home, travel of kids and carer to FENS or travel of a carer to your home for childcare during the FENS Forum 2018.
All attendees (students, postdocs and PIs) with dependent children are eligible. Preference is given to junior scientists and presenters.
