Cancellation by the organization
The organization reserves the right to cancel the course due to a lack of interest within two weeks after the application deadline. Participants should keep this in mind when making travel arrangements. With the exception of the registration fee, no expenses will be reimbursed. Registration fees will be reimbursed as quickly as possible.
You will receive an email with further practical information closer to the date. If you have any questions until then, please contact the programme's secretariat.
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. If the participant cancels within 4 weeks before the start of the summer school, € 100 of the registration fee will be refunded. All refunds are made in euros. The organization 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.
