19th European Congress on Alternatives to Animal Testing, September 20-23 2015, University of Linz, Austria

Young Scientist Travel Awards (YSTA)

05.07.2015 - Application closed! All applicants will be informed within the next days!

To promote sustainability of the 3R principles of Russel & Burch into Science of the 21st Century, EUSAAT wants to support the participation of as many young scientists as possible from different countries in the EUSAAT 2015 Congress by providing a special financial support:
Young scientists up to 35 years, in essence graduate-, postgraduate- or PhD-students may submit an abstract until 04 July 2015. In addition, they have to complete an application form for the YSTA, and to provide a document proving that they are inscribed as students at an established institution.
A Sub-Committee of the Scientific Committee of the EUSAAT 2015 Congress will evaluate all incoming YSTA applications according to three criteria,
(i) 3R relevance
(ii) scientific value
(iii) ranking within other YSTA applications.
According to the level of sponsoring achieved for YSTA, as many applications possible, meeting criteria (i) and (ii) will receive travel support in-kind as waiving of the congress fee and 4/5 nights free accommodation.
In addition, since many of the abstracts submitted together with YSTA applications might be submitted as posters, or selected by the Scientific Committee to be presented as posters, EUSAAT 2015 will hold a special "Young Scientists Session" where the best YASTA submissions can be presented as short oral presentations.
The best of the presentations of this session will receive an EUSAAT 2015 Diploma and a financial gratification.
