Climate action at EWSN 2022 

As the pandemic has made clear, in-person conferences are vital for academic exchange and progress but have an environmental impact in causing travel. Help to reduce our carbon footprint! Therefore, travel to EWSN 2022 in Linz (AT) by train and hand in your ticket to get a carbon footprint refund up to 500€. Only registered participants can be refunded. 

To promote low-carbon transportation, the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) has awarded a grant to EWSN 2022, so we can offer a ticket refund to presenters, attendees, and organizers. If the sum of the applications exceeds the maximum amount of the grant, the individual awards are decided by random drawing. The carbon footprint refund will be paid upon handing in of the relevant tickets after the conference. Of course, long distance travel includes flights, but we also support parts of the trip if you choose to travel by train rather than, e.g., renting a car. 

Refunding procedure:  

  • Tick off train travel refund when registering and provide an estimate of the ticket price.
  • After your travel, you will need to send a copy of your train ticket along with your bank details.
  • EWSN2022 organization team will check and if you are chosen for a refund will transfer the money to your bank account.
