Scholarships are available for participants coming from the EU. Applications submitted by participants from the V4 countries enjoy priority during the evaluation as the Forum has a strong focus on the Central European region.

The type of scholarships will be announced based on the candidates’ competencies, professional achievements, and educational background.

For those candidates applying from Hungary who do not reside in Budapest, accommodation will be available, and travel costs within Hungary will be covered.

Please note that we are planning to organise the event in a hybrid format (involving speakers online and in-person) and, in case international travel is allowed, we will welcome foreign participants in accordance with Hungarian and international measures valid in October 2021. We kindly ask you to consider the current roles/restrictions valid in your country before submitting your application.
