  • Share research ideas with domain experts; get rigorous feedback
  • Connect with an international network of peers
  • Visit state-of-the-art e-waste management facilities

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the participation fee for the EWAS is € 400 per participant. This includes the full tuition, accommodation, meals and study tours for the entire duration of the EWAS.

There is financial support (although limited) available as travel grants to some participants, based on merit and need.
