“We are offering Travel Bursaries to all young scientists, technicians and lab employees, to support their financial implications of attending the congress. More information on this can be found on our website. The deadline for these applications will be 15 June 2020,” said Professor Klaus Qvortrup, emc2020 Conference Chair.
