What is a DCG?

Dissemination Conferences consists in a presentation of the work of the Action in highlevel conferences by an Action participant. The conference:

  • significantly increases the visibility of the Action in the research community, can contribute to increasing visibility of the presenter;
  • attract additional participants and stakeholders and disseminate Action results to relevant end-users at high profile Conferences in the field on a topic relevant to the Action.

The DC Grantee receives support for attending and presenting the Action, their activities, and results (oral presentation) at a conference and/or for developing new contacts and potential future collaborations.

Conferences can be face-to-face or virtual conferences.

Rules

The DC applicant must be a PhD candidate or be engaged in a research programme as postdoctoral fellow or be employed by an institution of a COST Country that has signed the MoU of the Action. Applications from Young Researchers (under 40 years) are privileged. The selection of DCG applicants is based on the scientific scope of the DCG application that must be in line with the COST Action CA21143 objectives. The selection of successful candidates is made by the Action Core Group (CG). The Coordinator then informs the Grant Holder about successful candidate.
A DCG is a fixed contribution based on the requested budget that should reflect the duration and location of the DCG. The budget is evaluated by the Grant Awarding Coordinator and can be reduced by decision of the Core Group. The grant for face-to-face conferences is for travelling, accommodation and subsistence expenses, registration fee, printing of scientific poster and overall effort. It does not necessarily cover all such expenses.

Successful applicants will receive an allowance up to €1.800 per grant for face-to-face conferences.
After the DC, the DC participant must submit a scientific report to the grant awarding coordinator within 30 days after the end of his/her stays and in any case on 15th of October 2024 at the latest.
