Travel grants

DEADLINE FOR TRAVEL GRANT APPLICATION IS 15th OF JUNE 2018  Extended until June 30, 2018! 

Due to the support of our generous sponsors, last year we managed to award 70 travel grants to participants. Travel grants cover your registration fee and expenses such as travel/accommodation/poster printing/food of up to 300€. If you apply, you will still need to pay for registration and cover your expenses during the conference. If you get awarded a travel grant, we will have to cancel your initial registration to facilitate refunding of the registration fee to your credit card. We will then need you to register again via a special link we will provide. Workshop and dinner with speakers fees are not included in the travel grant and will have to be paid again during re-registration. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

To apply, you will need to upload a CV in pdf format in addition to your scientific abstract during the application process.

How to register

Please read the registration guidelines before signing up.

The application process is split into two parts: the scientific application on this website, and the payment process, to which you will be automatically forwarded afterwards. You need to complete both steps to successfully apply to the ENABLE 2018 conference:

  1. Fill up the scientific application on this website.
  2. Complete the registration in our payment system, where the registration fee will be charged on your credit/debit card.

Please make sure to use the same name and email address for both websites, and do not perform either registration step twice.

Poster, short talk and microtalk applications

During the event in Copenhagen, we want to give as many participants as possible the chance to present their research to their peers, the invited speakers, and even the public.

If you apply for a poster, short talk and/or microtalk, we need you to upload your scientific abstract together with your registration in our system. Changes to your abstract afterwards can unfortunately not be considered. Abstracts should be minimum 100 words, maximum 300 words, and may not include line breaks or pictures.

We will evaluate your scientific abstract, and your video in case you apply for a microtalk (see below). We will then award poster, short and microtalk space based on scientific quality, impact and suitability regarding the conference topic.

Unfortunately, due to space and time limitations, this means that not all participants will be able to present a poster, short talk or microtalk. However, all the submitted abstracts will be included in the abstract book.

There will be prizes awarded for the best posters, microtalks and short talks.

*A microtalk is a 10-minute talk in a bar for the general public, who don’t have a scientific background. Part of the challenge and fun of this presentation format is to show your research in a way that non-scientists can understand it. We will judge your application based on the clarity and quality of your abstract, and on a video you can upload explaining your research (3 minutes or less). The video is not mandatory, but highly recommended. We suggest you upload it to YouTube as an unlisted video (remember to make it unlisted and not private - if you make it private we won’t be able to see it). You then need to submit the link to your video within our application system.
Please paste here an abstract of your research. Changes to your abstract afterwards can unfortunately not be considered. Abstracts should be min 100 words, max 300 words, and may not include line breaks or pictures.
Max. 15 words
Format “Name1 Surname1, Name2 Surname2”e.g. “Andrea Mann, Christoph Lukas, Frederike Brunak”
Format institute/department, university, address, country, e.g. “NNF Center for Protein Research, Copenhagen University, Blegdamsvej 3b, Copenhagen, Denmark”.
