Participants that are already sure to come to ERAD2022 in Locarno can select directly the ONLINE + ONSITE UPGRADE.

 

We have reserved a budget to support young researchers from institutions with limited travel budget. In addition, the Swiss Academy of Sciences scnat is sponsoring the travelling, accommodation and registration costs for one student. Applicants are asked to check the box for the “Reduced Registration Fee Program” in the abstract submission form and submit a curriculum vitae including birth date and a motivation letter signed by the head of the institute or employer to erad2022@meteoswiss.ch by 15 April 2022.
