- Education in the fields of Antennas & Propagation
- Coordination of research & networking activities in the fields of Antennas & Propagation in Europe or in relationship to Europe.

Nominations have to be made before December 15th, 2013 using the official form, which can be downloaded HERE.

A detailed description of the award and the selection procedure can also be found HERE.


TICRA Grants


TICRA offers 5 travel grants of 1500 EURO each to students participating in the 2014 EuCap in den Haag.

TICRA has extraordinarily decided to make available the net sum of EUR 7,500 to be granted students who have submitted a full paper for the 2014 EuCap conference on Antennas and Propagation and will present it during the conference. The selection of candidates will be made by a committee at TICRA based on an application submitted by the student. Each successful candidate will receive EUR 1,500 towards travel expenses, accommodation and conference fee. Formal requirements are that the applicant

- is a PhD student or has obtained the PhD in 2014
- is affiliated with an educational institution
- is under 35 years of age
- submits a full paper (3-5 pages) through the EDAS® conference management system before the deadline set by the EuCap organizing committee
- personally presents the paper at EuCAP
- is present at the EuCAP banquet to receive the award
- is endorsed by his or her immediate supervisor

The application must contain a summary of your thesis work, your CV with past publications, your current work place, and your own view on why you qualify for this travel grant. Feel free to attach any recommendations you may have.

The application shall be sent via e-mail to TICRA no later than February 14, 2014, to, with copy to Successful candidates will be notified by March 3, 2014.



The EuCAP Best Paper Awards have been created to contribute to the recognition of scientific quality of research and engineering in four thematic domains of Antennas and Propagation, through a transparent and fair decision process, as detailed below. 

Awards chairmen: 

Prof. Andrea Neto, 
Prof. Alain Sibille


The best papers Awards, sponsored by Thales and the European School of Antennas, will be given in five different categories. After a hard pre-selection, the five finalists from each category will compete for the award on dedicated Poster Sessions in afternoon of Thursday, April 10th. They will evaluated by five committees composed by some of the top experts in the respective fields.
