Registrations are now closed! The 28 available places were filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Should you want to be part of the 2023 edition, please contact [email protected] to ensure you are placed on the priority waiting list.


FEES

Registration fees depend on the participant's status (Student (must provide a copy of a valid student ID) or Professional) and on the organisation's status (Member / Non Member). DHC+ c/o Euroheat & Power will check all student IDs submitted upon registration. Should an ID be invalid at the time of the Summer School, the participant's category will be adjusted to reflect the accurate pricing and category. No refunds will be provided to participants who fail to provide a valid student ID and withdraw registration as a result or to those who register in an incorrect category.

The participation fee covers the tuition fee, educational materials, lunches, coffee breaks, transportation to sites and networking dinners. Travel costs and other related expenses are neither included nor reimbursable. All fees are in Euro (€).
