           Announcement of scholarships and grants

to apply for scholarships of the ECOC 2004 foundation.

The ECOC 2004 funding is dedicated to:

    • visiting scientists to KPRC
    • “Blue-sky”, proof-of-principle research with strong promise of follow-on funding.

In the case of visits, the scholarships are intended to cover costs for travel, accommodation
and a daily allowance, the latter to be negotiated on a case by case basis. Typical time for the
scholarship is 1-3 months and typical amounts 50 – 75 kSEK/scholarship.
In the case of a research project, each grant will typically amount to 100-150 kSEK and the
project duration is expected to be of at most one year.
The indicative annual financing from the foundation amounts to 300-400 kSEK.

The application, max 3 A4 pages, should comprise project description, assessment of added
value for KPRC, as well as a budget. In the case of a visit, it is expected and assumed that
the hosting partner has given its agreement for the visit. In the case of a research activity, a
