7ECM Grant Program

To ensure broad participation in the 7ECM and reduce economic barriers, up to one hundred grants were offered to mathematicians from developing countries as defined by the European Mathematical Society as well as all European mathematicans from countries that are not EU members or associated countries (Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Faeroe Islands, Israel and Turkey) are eligible for the 7ECM grant program. All researchers in mathematics based in one of the listed countries and born in 1981 or later were eligible to apply.
