Registration/confirmation of course registration

Registrations have to be made in written form by sending the completed registration form (via fax message, e-mail, online shop or mail) and will be considered in the order in which they are received. The number of participants is limited. In consideration of vacant places every registration is legally binding und will be automatically booked. After the registration you will receive (via e-mail or mail) further information about the method of payment, the wetlab course, a confirmation of registration and the invoice. Registrations, rebookings and cancellations are accepted in writing only (fax message, e- mail or mail).

Participation fees

The participation fees are due in full within 10 days after registering to an event. Only a payment in due time guarantees the reservation of an available place. The fees do not include accommodation. Prices include 20% VAT.

Terms of cancellation

Cancellations have to be made in writing. If a participant is prevented from the course by any reason after full payment, the course can be cancelled

  • up to 6 months before the event with a handling fee of 10% of the booking’s total cost
  • up to 3 months before the event with a handling fee of 20% of the booking’s total cost

No cancellation fee is applied if the participant nominates a substitute. Reimbursements may be subject to external handling fees out of our control that have to be covered by the participant. We regret that we are unable to refund any delegate travel and/or accommodation costs that have already been incurred by the delegate, or any administration charges relating to cancellation of travel tickets or accommodation.

Modifications of the course program and date

The course date and the course program can be subject to modification. Also the time schedule, the instructors, the location of the course can be modificated. Registered participants will be informed in time of any changes. If the course is cancelled due to an act of god, there is no entitlement to an execution of the course.
