Accessibility and Well-Being

C-DICE is committed to making the Net Zero Futures Conference 2024 an inclusive and accessible event. View all the arrangements that will be in place at the conference to support delegates that may require it.

Travel to Cranfield University

Situated close to Milton Keynes and Bedford, the Cranfield campus is situated in Wharley End, very close to Cranfield village, and is about 10 minutes from the M1 motorway. There is rail and road access to most major airports, as well as coach and train stations.

Support to attend the conference

If you need support to attend the conference, a Caring Support Fund is available to help carers meet the additional costs, and a Travel Grant Fund to help postdoctoral researchers attend when they may otherwise not have the funds to do so. Register on Inkpath and sign on to the activity to apply.

There are also a limited number of rooms available at Cranfield University for delegates that require accommodation. Delegates will be considered for allocation, if stated in their travel grant application. This does not guarantee a booking even if the travel grant is approved.
