Other relevant information
Funds from the Action Austria – Slovakia can be used for organization of lecture series of excellent researchers from Austria to Slovakia and from Slovakia to Austria. The aim is to support keynote speakers, lecture series and the support of exchange of the latest scientific knowledge in the field. Speakers should be exclusively scientists with excellent results in their work. Lectures should be freely accessible not only to experts from the host institution, but also for students, future students and other interested parties outside the host institution.
The maximum amount of support within the Action in this type of projects is 5 000 EUR. It is expected that the host institution also contribute financially to the project. The Action Austria – Slovakia will mainly finance subsistence and mobility expenses (the salary will not be reimbursed).
