The application should be made before the licence/book has been bought, or for conferences/courses that took place or will take place in 2021. Only actual costs up to the approved sum are reimbursed.
The applications are processed as they arrive. Last day to send in an application is the 31st of December 2021. If the application is approved, the applicant will get a written approval stating that the SLU Plant Protection Network guarantees a grant up to a certain amount.
For the attendance of conferences, workshops or similar, it is recommended that all costs are paid by the department until the course is over and the applicant has received a conference/ course certificate. To get the reimbursement, the department sends an internal invoice based on the actual costs together with a copy of the course certificate to the SLU Plant Protection Network.
The application must contain:
- The applicants name and workplace (department & faculty at SLU), as well as the supervisors/work leaders name and workplace
- Short description of the work of the PhD student, technician or postdoc and why the conference or course is relevant to attend or why the licence or book are important in a plant protection/plant health work context (max. 1 A4-page Times New Roman 12 point, single line spacing, 2 cm margins)
- Letter of approval from the supervisor (PhD students) or work leader (postdocs and technicians)
- Information on the conference (date, fee, form of presentation), course (date, fee, credits), licence (costs for one year) or book (costs)
