Conference Grant Program

We are pleased to announce that InterPore Foundation for Porous Media Science and Technology (InterPore Foundation) would once again like to offer a number of conference grants to scientists from academic institutions from countries with lower- or middle-income economies, as defined by the World Bank, and to graduate students.

In addition to paying the conference registration fees, the InterPore Foundation will provide up to €500 per recipient to go towards travel costs.

Applicants must have a presentation at the InterPore2023 conference and current InterPore membership.

Application package should include:

  • a copy of the CV and
  • a statement of justification of no more than 1 A4 page, explaining how presentation in the conference will benefit the applicant's academic development and career.

Students need also to provide a letter of support from supervisor or head of department.

Please send the full application package to no later than Monday, February 28th. 

The grants will be awarded based on applicants' academic attainment and quality of their research abstracts.


Help InterPore Foundation 

Please consider making a donation to InterPore Foundation in any amount to enable the participation of your fellow researchers.

Your generous support will help students and scientists, who would not otherwise be able to attend InterPore2023, gain experience and exposure and build their scientific network at an international conference. The number of grants we can provide is dependent on the donations of people like you

At InterPore2022, six participants were offered a grant which included registration fees and contributions towards travel costs. This year our goal is to do even better! 

Below you can see quotes from a few of the grants recipients and how the donations made a true difference!

"InterPore2022 conference grant made a wonderful opportunity for me to be among top leaders of porous media research. I had the chance to present my recent works on ceramic foam materials for the solar fuel synthesis process. I could also meet and greet new scientists, other than just in materials engineering, who passionately work on porous materials. I am completely sure that this network will boost my future collaboration in the field and we can make huge progress. I appreciate the conference organizers for considering such grants and hope this opportunity for others." 
-Amir Masoud Parvanian, PhD in Materials Engineering and InterPore2022 Conference Grant Recipient
"The InterPore 2022 Grant made it possible for me to share my ideas and propose ideal suggestions for the future of  my field of work."
