Participation costs for international participants (or local participants) without accommodation in México City are 7700 Mexican peso or 350 euros (excl. VAT). The fee includes accommodation in México City, programme costs, supervision, social activities, field trips, working locations, some of the meals, presentations by experts, soft skills training (presentation and working in teams) and the Finals and Awarding event at the Aquatech México Water Exhibition & Conference. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (like plane tickets and some local travel), meals, drinks and other personal costs.

The fee for Méxican participants, with their own accommodation in México City, is 1000 Mexican peso. It includes all above arrangements, except for the accommodation in México City.

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.).
