To promote the 3R principles of Russel & Burch EUSAAT is in 2018 again promoting the participation of young scientists from around the world in the EUSAAT 2018 Congress by providing travelling support to young scientists via the EUSAAT 2018 YSTA program.

To get selected to the EUSAAT 2018 YSTA program, young scientists up to 35 years, e.g. graduate-, postgraduate- or PhD-students, must submit the following three documents until 06 July 2018:

  • an abstract via our online submission form - closed
  • an application form for the EUSAAT 2018 YSTA program - closed
  • provide a document proving that they are students or post-docs at an established institution.

Members of the Scientific Committee of the EUSAAT 2018 Congress will evaluate all applications for the EUSAAT 2018 YSTA  program according to three criteria:

  1. 3R relevance
  2. scientific value
  3. ranking among the EUSAAT 2018 YSTA applications

According to the amount funding provided to the EUSAAT 2018 YSTA program by our sponsors successful applicants will receive travel support in-kind as

  • waiving of the congress fee and

All abstracts submitted by EUSAAT 2018 YSTA applicants and accepted by the Scientific Committee will be presented as posters. In addition EUSAAT 2018 will schedule a special "Young Scientists Session", where the best YSTA submissions will be presented as short oral presentations.
