Funding for travel to Europe for SA researchers
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is the longest-running European framework supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe. The Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) is able to provide seed funding for the travel costs of South African researchers traveling to Europe. The visit must contribute or enhance South Africa's Science & Technology knowledgebase and human capital. The applicant should have been accepted by the COST Action Chair to be part of the projects before applying to DSI for funding to attend the COST Action activities. A once off payment of R100 000.00 will be transferred on an annual basis upon receipt of the first application for the year, and funds are to be used for the COST Action activities of the year of application. Applicants will be required to report to the DSI on each activity strictly 30 days upon its execution. No closing date supplied.
