The participation fee for (international) participants without accommodation in Budapest is € 275,- (excl. VAT). This participation fee includes accommodation, teambuilding activities, some lunches & dinners, field trips, workshop, supervision, trainings, working venues and Finals & Awarding Ceremony. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (like plane tickets and some local travel), meals, drinks and other personal costs.

For local applicants with accommodation in Budapest, the participation fee is € 50,- (excl. VAT).  It includes all above arrangements, except for the accommodation in Budapest.

During past editions participants often successfully arranged financial compensation for their Wetskills participation from their university or employer. We therefore strongly encourage applicants to inquire about funding opportunities to compensate the costs (university mobility funds, travel allowance etc.).
