66th Lindau Nobel laureate Meeting – Travel & Accommodation Grants
The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the European Union of Science Journalists´ Association (EUSJA) have agreed to support the participation of EUSJA member journalists in the 66th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting at Lindau (Germany) 26 June – 1 July 2016. Apply now!
30 Nobel Laureates and Vinton Cerf (ACM A.M. Turing Award 2004) have confirmed their participation in this unique meeting that will be dedicated to physics. They will meet approximately 400 aspiring undergraduates, PhD students, and post-docs from 80 countries. Numerous lectures, panels, discussion sessions, and master classes, as well as a diverse programme of social functions and events will account for an inspiring week of exchange and networking.
Journalists interested in covering the meeting may now apply for funding of their travel and accommodation. Besides participating in the programme events, journalists may mingle with the meeting participants, arrange interviews and visit 1-4 press talks (panel discussions featuring Nobel Laureates and young scientists with subsequent Q&A round).
EUSJA members – employed as well as freelance science journalists – interested in covering the Lindau Meeting are eligible to apply for funding of their travel and accommodation. The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings will cover the costs of a return-flight in economy class to a nearby international airport (transfers not included) and a three-night’s stay at a hotel in or around Lindau (additional nights may be booked at one’s own expense). Additional expenses, e.g. train tickets/taxi costs/boarding/etc., will not be refunded.
Please send your application consisting of a short CV and a motivation letter indicating your specific journalistic interests by email to the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting by 1 April 2016 (deadline).
