First of all congratulations to those who have been selected to be the game changers. For non-EU people, here is a tip:
- While applying for visa, do mention in your application that you are a researcher and have been awarded a scholarship from EIT InnoEnergy. In this way your visa fee will be waived off and you will get free visa for a year of study.
- Exception may be Belgian embassy; which charges a separate processing fee in addition to visa fee. By mentioning that you are a researcher, you can waive off 100€ visa fee, but you have to pay the processing fee.
Cheers and have fun.
