PACE Travel Grant

The PACE Travel Grant programmes provide financial support for those who will be presenting at the Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2018 and have limited financial possibilities to do so. 

Important remark about the submission number: we changed to a new submission system with no submission ID numbers. So please fill in '0' in the Submission ID field of your travel grant application! We will check the status of your submissions for you.  

Application for the Travel Grant

The travel grant application process is now open and will close on 30 April 2018 (23:59, GMT +1). After this date new applications are no longer possible.

Applicants will receive results ultimately by early June 2018. 

The grant selection process is separate from the Technical Programme selection process. 

Please note: Before applying for the PACE Travel Grant you should have a submission in place for the Technical Programme of 2018 Near Surface Geoscience Conference and Exhibition of either:

  • 24th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics
  • Second Conference on Geophysics for Mineral Exploration and Mining
  • Third Applied Shallow Marine Geophysics Confrence

A submission for the Technical Programme 2018 Near Surface Geoscience Conference & Exhibition (deadline 15 April) is mandatory before applying for the grant.
Every applicant will need to arrange and pay for their travels and accommodation before the conference, including visa. The grant, if allocated to the applicant, will not be paid before the event. Furthermore, please note that the grant is a substantial contribution towards your expenses and not a full reimbursement.
It is mandatory for accepted applicants to report onsite at the later communicated location and time slots options, in order to obtain the grant.
