The ECTN will not reimburse any travel costs or other expenses except in exceptional circumstances. It is suggested that participants should request travel costs from their university Socrates Institutional Contract (organisation of student mobility) if possible. The plenary meeting is an excellent opportunity to discuss student exchanges.

The ECTN will fund up to 10 students to attend the meeting (travel and accommodation/subsistence), with not more than one student from any one institution. Requests for this funding should be made to Tony Smith.
