Successful candidates receive support in the form of conference fee plus travel, accommodation, meals / per diem for a maximum total grant of EUR 2200. Additional expenses need to be covered by other sponsorship or by candidates themselves. Under exceptional circumstances and depending on travel costs, funding of up to EUR 2.700 may be considered. Preference will be given to candidates who are living and working in low-resourced countries.
Eligible are those
- who are currently working in a public library
- who have documented endorsement by institution/library
- who are library and information professionals with at least three years, but no more than eight years, of library or information science experience
- and who have sufficient English skills, as Next Library 2013 will be conducted entirely in English
