Conference Grant

ESIST is committed to supporting its members in participating in all types of AVT events. We have teamed up with the biennual Languages and the Media and Media for All conferences to offer our members the opportunity to engage not only with other ESIST members but with the audiovisual translation and media accessibility community at large.

For each of these conferences, we have secured a fee waiver from the conference organisers*, and ESIST will offer a €300-travel grant to cover travel/accommodation/subsistence expenses.

A call will be circulated for each Conference Grant among ESIST members, depending on the relevant conference dates. The email will include information about deadlines, requirements and procedures.

Eligibility criteria

  1. Candidates must be paid-up ESIST members for the year the conference is taking place.
  2. Candidates must have an abstract accepted by the conference organiser. Candidates must independently submit their conference abstract for a Presentation or Poster Presentation to the relevant conference.
  3. Candidates need to submit the online application form.
  4. Early career researchers and/or professionals will be given priority.
