Joint CPEM and LNE Early Career Programme

The Executive Committee of CPEM and the Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essais (LNE) are proud to sponsor an early career programme to provide financial assistance to young scientists of National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) to attend CPEM 2018.



Early career programme grants will cover travel expenses such as airfare, accommodation and meals, up to a maximum of 1000 €, for approximately 10 participants, and conference registration fee will be prepaid for 5 participants. These two kinds of support may be combined. Grants will be awarded on the basis of financial need and the scientific quality of the applicant. Support for travel expenses will be paid in the form of a reimbursement of incurred costs, justified by original invoices, transport tickets, etc.
