SESAM Supported Working Meetings

The SESAM supported working meetings provide a platform for collaboration, exchange and dissemination of knowledge between SESAM members and beyond. They are a service by SESAM for its members.

SESAM supports the organisation of working meetings

  • financially with up to €2000 per working meeting for travel, material, salaries, etc.
  • by advertising the working meeting
  • by providing logistical and administrative support
  • the certificate provided for workshop participation can carry the SESAM label

Each working meeting and all facilitators shall be acknowledged on the SESAM webpage, in the newsletter and at the general assembly by name and institution. The EC determines the maximum number of workshops that can be funded per year based on the financial situation of SESAM.

The suggested price limit for the participation in a single working meeting by SESAM members is €150.
