We are happy to announce that BASIS Foundation for the Advancement of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics is offering travel grants to students (BA/MA and PhD) and young mathematicians from the Russian Federation to participate at the 8th European Congress of Mathematics.

The Foundation was established in 2016 with the main goal to support theoretical physics and mathematics in Russia. Their wide-ranging programme includes individual grants to support Russian scientists at every stage of their career, and financial support for international cooperation in scientific fields, including participation of researchers in the best programmes, conferences and schools.

The deadline for application is March 15, 2020 and it must be submitted through the online application.

The 8ECM travel grant can cover travel expenses, accommodation, daily allowance (meals, local transport etc.), congress participation, consular and visa fees.

The Organizers of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics would like to thank BASIS for their generous support!  

This is an excellent way to support young mathematicians. We hope that similar organizations in other countries will follow suit and enable the best young mathematicians to participate at the 8ECM.
