Fee and application

The price includes course participation, accommodation from 22.5.-27.5., meals and coffee breaks from Sunday noon to Friday morning and course materials. If you wish to arrive already on Saturday, this is possible for an extra charge of 35 Euro for the additional overnight stay. Please select the appropriate option when registering. Not included in the price are alcoholic beverages and drinks outside of those served at meals and coffee breaks, as well as transportation costs and any mandatory Sars-CoV-2 testing that may come our way.

Scholarships for colleagues from countries with limited resources will unfortunately not be awarded in the usual form in 2022. The pandemic-related travel restrictions force us to accept international applications only from selected partner countries where the requirements for entry are met. Thus, with a heavy heart, we will not offer our open application process in 2022. In the future we hope to be able to accept applications again as we used to. For this we ask you to send us a letter of motivation including your curriculum vitae. You can find more details on this under the section “sponsoring of international colleagues“.

Vegan and vegetarian options are available at each meal. Hosting the course there for the first time in 2016 has proven to be a complete success.

Course venue

The course is taking place at Schloß Rauischholzhausen which is the conference center of the University of Gießen. We are happy to be able to host our course at this historical and beautiful site. It offers learning space and accommodation combined in the same building and due to the affiliation with the University the prices are fair. A good variety of seminar rooms compliment our course concept of combining lectures with small group activities. Moving our course to this location in 2016 has proven to have been worthwhile.
