After the applicant selection process, the European Academy of Childhood Disability and the organising team will consider on a case-by-case basis where assistance to cover part of the travel and/accommodation expenses might be appropriate to support people who may not be able to attend otherwise. Particular emphasis is placed on assisting those from European middle-income and low-income countries (Country Income Classification - World Bank Atlas Method). As such, potential applicants who may not be able to attend otherwise are encouraged to indicate in their application if and why they would need assistance to cover part of the travel and/or accommodation expenses.
