Do you want to hear about experiences from people who actually succeeded in getting these grants and what kind of support ETH offers you when applying for these grants?

Our speakers will talk about available schemes, eligibility requirements, important details of the programmes, as well as personal experience with applying for these grants. You will get an opportunity to ask questions directly!
