The chances of actually being offered a travel ticket depend on the following two factors:
- How many awarded participants don’t confirm their place: Reserve participants are offered tickets left unused by awarded participants.
- The value of the tickets awarded: If the value of the tickets awarded to the selected participants is lower than the maximum value envisaged under this initiative, the European Commission may award tickets to applicants placed on the reserve list up to the complete use of the available funds. For this purpose, travel bookings and budget consumption will be reviewed on a monthly basis.
If you are contacted towards the end of the project, due to being on the reserve list, you cannot claim reimbursement for travels made prior to the invitation, nor request an extension of the travel period.
