The information below will help you to understand what might be eligible and how to apply, but if you have any questions please contact Techne administration. Please note that students may only claim travel from their home address as recorded at their institution or from another starting point where the travel costs are lower than those from the home address.
Techne has funding to support Student-led Events. These must involve at least five students from more than one Techne institution. Techne can offer administrative and financial support of up to £1000 for student-led events or initiatives which may include: symposia, performances, workshops, poster days, exhibitions, public engagement events or awaydays.
There are two deadlines for applications
through the year to coincide with meetings of the Techne Training Group who will assess the applications. Look out for email updates from the Techne admin team for deadlines.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Student-Led Event Funding Application’ in the subject field. All applications will be acknowledged, and considered at the next meeting of the Training Group.
Travel costs for attending Techne events (such as, but not limited to, the Techne bi-annual Student Congresses, Welcome Event, Confluxes, and Techne funded one day training events) can be reclaimed from your home
institution using its usual procedure for expense claims. Please reference the name of the event on your expense claim. If you are unsure if the event is a Techne funded event please get in touch with us to check.
accommodation has been provided but no evening meal, you can claim
reimbursement for those subsistence costs (in line with your institution's
policy and normally limited to £20). Note that travel costs for students travelling to their home
institution are not eligible. Students may only claim travel within the UK and from
their home address as recorded at their institution or from another starting
point where the travel costs are lower than those from the home address.
