DTL has reserved a small sum of money to make sure ELIXIR NL can be represented in international meetings even if the DTL personnel can not personally attend.

If someone from the Dutch ELIXIR community wants to attend such an international meeting, they can ask whether they can make use of this travel fund. There are a number of restrictions on the use.
