Family support awards available for NuMat 2020
Abstract Submission Deadline: 1 May 2020

Attending conferences is one of the career necessities of being a researcher—they offer opportunities for staying informed about the field, networking, and presenting research. But traveling for an extended period can put pressure on families, forcing researchers to make sacrifices that cost time and money.

To ease that pressure, Elsevier and Materials Today have provided funds to help supplement the costs related to childcare responsibilities for early-career researchers attending NuMat 2020. Up to $500 per award will be granted by Elsevier Editors to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators. Only delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (awarded on a first come first serve basis).

If you and your family would benefit from a Family Support Award, visit the NuMat 2020 Family Support page and complete the form.

We look forward to seeing you NuMat 2020 in Ghent, Belgium, from 26–30 October, 2020.

Yours sincerely,

Conference Chairs:

Ann Leenaers, Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, SCK CEN, Belgium
Lorenzo Malerba, CIEMAT, Spain
Philippe Pareige, Université de Rouen, France
Michael Preuss, The University of Manchester, UK
