Applications for the jet programme for J and Beyond 2016 are now open

The Joomla! Event Traveller Programme (JET) is pleased to announce that we will be taking applications from the worldwide Joomla community for the upcoming JandBeyond, to be held between 20th and 22nd of May, 2016 Barcelona, Spain.

A reduced budget has been approved for use by the JET team to run the program for JAB 2016.   There is a 25% limit on 2015 line items because the 2016 budget has yet to be finalised and approved and will not be until at least the end of March 2016.

Please consider these limitations before applying for the program, also because of the financial restrictions, we have included the option for you to elect to pay for your ticket, accommodation and/or flight, the selection criteria will not take these items into account, but if you are able to contribute something towards your attendance, it will free up more funds for those that are less able to.

Please also check that you will not be already be covered for the trip by your project team (if any).

The deadline for applications is the 6th of March 2016 and the recipients will be announced by the 12th of March 2016.

 

Application Criteria

The criteria to be followed by the JET Team for the election of candidates is as follows:
