The World Congress Travel Grant program aims to foster neuroscience research by providing support to scientists from diverse geographical and scientific areas, who wish to participate in the 11th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience.

The 11th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience will be hosted by the Spanish Neuroscience Society (SENC) at the Granada Exhibition and Conference Centre from 9-13 September 2023. This World Congress represents a unique opportunity for neuroscientists from around the world to get together and enjoy excellent science in one of Europe’s most impressive cities. We invite you to take advantage of this exciting event to showcase your science and look forward to welcoming you to Granada in 2023.

Applications for the IBRO World Congress Travel Grants open at the same time as abstract submission. You will be required to provide your abstract submission number as part of the travel grant application form. Grants are paid by bank transfer after the awardee has attended the Congress and submitted their certificate of attendance to the IBRO Secretariat by email.
