Travel grants

Written by Katarzyna
The 46th annual symposium will be held in the University of Silesia, South Poland, on 22-27 July 2019, with the general theme Technology and Power. We offer a limited number of grants to help de­fray some of the expenses of attending the symposium. The Grants will be made available largely thanks to a generous support from the Juanelo Turriano Foundation and the Division of History of Science and Technology (DHST).

Who is eligible?

In 2019, the ICOHTEC Travel Grants will be awarded in two categories:
Up to 350 Euro each – eligible for applying are graduates, post-graduates and young scholars whose papers have been accepted for the scientific programme of our 2019 Symposium. Special preference will be given to participants from low-income countries, who are not able to receive sufficient financial support elsewhere. These travel grants are not intended to cover the full costs of attending the Symposium, and may be used to bus/train/ferry/flight tickets, lodging and/or registration fee.
Up to 200 Euro each – eligible for applying are the students and early career researchers parti­cipating in the ICOHTEC Summer School in Katowice. Students and researchers, whose papers have also been accepted for the scientific programme of our 2019 Sympo­sium, following im­mediately the Summer School, are eligible for the Travel Grant of up to 350 Euro each.

How do I apply?

The Travel Grant Application Form must be filled in, and sent by 5 April 2019 as an e-mail attachment to Timo Myllyntaus, the Chair of the Travel Grant Committee at This email address is being protected from spambots.

In addition to the information provided in the application form, please attach a short CV or bio, as well as an appropriate document proving your status (a scan of your student’s ID or supervisor’s/professor’s letter if applicable). The reim­burse­ment will be made after the accepted paper is presented in person by the Grantee at the Sym­po­sium. Please, note that all money transfers can be made only after the symposium.
