Preference will be given to applications involving presenting a paper. Presentations that include a slide or two about the PESFOR-W COST Action are encouraged.

The Grantee has 30 calendar days from the end date of the Conference in question to submit a scientific report to the Action Vice-Chair Prof Gebhard Schueler (email@example.com) copying in the Action Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Grant Manager Elisabetta Zanaga (email@example.com)
Payment of the Grant is subject to the scientific report being approved by the Action Vice-Chair. Written approval of the submitted scientific report must be sent to the Grant Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) for archiving purposes.
