Sleep Europe Travel Grant


A limited number of travel grants will support attendees requiring financial assistance, particularly individuals at the early stages of their career. We also have a limited number of grants to support sustainable travel. These will support successful authors to choose more sustainable forms of travel to the congress – for example train travel. Successful applicants will be asked to provide evidence of their travel on receipt of the grant/after booking travel.
