Grants – Europe Chapter exchange programme

VRC Corporation Grant

VRC Corporation focuses on operational and developmental test and evaluation, transportation systems human factors, and training research and development services. VRC has decided to stimulate the Europe Chapter exchange programme and to facilitate attendence of the Chapter’s annual conference. For this purpose the VRC Corportation Grant was established.

In general terms, the following grant limitations apply:

For exchange:

  • Main focus groups are students and post-graduates interested in participating in a research project abroad, wanting to learn state-of-the-art techniques, participate in research co-operation, or work on their thesis.
  • Exchange/visits should take place between the USA and Europe (both directions), or within European institutions or universities
  • To be eligible, either the visitor or a co-worker of the hosting institute should be member of the Europe Chapter.
  • Visits to companies/universities are typically intended to be for a short term (typically 1 week – 3 months)
  • The maximum financial contribution is € 1.200.-

For travel:

  • The travel grant is explicitly meant to facilitate attendance of the annual conference for people working in or interested in Human Factors from eastern European countries, who would otherwise not be able to visit the meeting.

Needless to say that the Grant is restricted, and not all applications can be (fully) awarded.
