travel and accommodation expenses. To apply for a grant, send a message

*4. EU-Projects Village*

------------------------------------------------------------------------

*20 booths*have already been booked by European projects at the EU 
Village, a Projects Village to be set up at LREC 2012 with the support 
of the European Commission. The main objective of this exhibition for 
on-going EC-sponsored projects is to disseminate information by 
describing the activities/objectives and showing progress, either 
through demos, or through brochures or leaflets if the project is still 
at an early stage.
The cost of participating to the EU Village is an eligible cost under 
"Information Dissemination" item.

The EU projects Village will be open from May 23 to 25, 2012 during the 
Main conference days. More
