NMR invites applications for grants toward the participation of eight PhD students in the 14th International Metropolis Conference, to take place at the Copenhagen Bella Center, Denmark, September 14-18, 2009 (about the conference, see www.metropolis2009.org).


The eight grants will support the participation of two PhD students from each of the four NMR countries, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.


Each grant comprises a fee waiver (worth DKK 3000) and the coverage of travel expenses between the home city and Copenhagen.


The following criteria of eligibility apply:

• The PhD must be a member of NMR
• The PhD must have submitted a paper for presentation at the conference (either as an individual paper or as part of a joint workshop proposal)
• The PhD must be enrolled as a PhD student at a Nordic university at the time of the conference (but must not necessarily be a citizen of one of the four Nordic countries)

Apart from a cover letter describing the applicant’s interest in the conference, applications must comprise the following documents:

• Evidence of PhD enrolment, and when enrolment will terminate.
• A full CV and a list of publications
• Abstract of paper submitted for Metropolis presentation

The selection of the award winners will be made by the NMR Board; notification of the result will be posted on the NMR website by May 1, 2009. In addition, award winners will be personally notified.

Deadline for applications is April 15, 2009.


Applications should be sent (by post or electronically) to:
