Q: Can conferences be organised within an ITN? (All Calls)
A: Yes. In the context of ITNs, conferences, workshops, seminars, summer schools etc. are an opportunity for the recruited researchers to exchange knowledge with more experienced researchers and to open the research training programme to researchers from outside the network. However, ITN is not a scheme for conferences, but rather a scheme for improving training and career perspectives of researchers. Therefore, the number of conferences should be in reasonable relation to the proposed research training programme.
For ITN calls published in 2009 onwards there is no longer a separate cost category for conferences and these costs must be covered from Category E/3: contribution to the research/training/transfer of knowledge programme expenses.
