Cancellation by the organisation
The organisation reserves the right to cancel the course due to a lack of interest within two weeks after the deadline of application. Participants should keep this in mind when making travel arrangements; any expenses made other than registration fees will not be reimbursed. Registration fees will be reimbursed as soon as possible.
COVID-19: At this moment, the summer school is still scheduled to go ahead as planned. We will monitor the situation closely in the meanwhile. A final decision will be taken mid-June. In case of cancellation, the registration fee will be reimbursed as soon as possible.
Cancellation by the participant
If the participant cancels more than 4 weeks before the start of the summer school, 50 % of the registration fee can be reimbursed to the participant. If the participant cancels within 4 weeks before the start of the summer school, only € 100 of the registration fee will be refunded. All refunds are made in euros. The organisation cannot refund any shortfalls due to exchange rate fluctuations or bank charges.
COVID-19: Applicants who are unable to travel due to COVID-19 can receive a full refund of their registration fee if they can provide the following evidence:
- Official communication from the visa office, Embassy or Consulate in case a visa could not be obtained due to COVID-19 regulations.
- Official communication from the home institution, employer or a medical facility stating that it is not possible to travel due to COVID-19 implications.
Applicants that can’t provide such a proof will not have the fees refunded.
