Details of assignment - poster or oral, will follow in due course.

Accommodation grant

Authors of the 5 top-grade abstracts at each university will receive an accommodation grant by Wageningen University & Research for 3 nights, Thursday - Sunday. The recipients will be notified directly by Wageningen University & Research as soon as they have been chosen. In addition, some universities may support authors with travel scholarships. Notification of this will also be given directly to the students.
