Participation costs for international participants or local participants with accommodation in Barcelona are 390 Euros (early bird fee: 370 Euro). The fee includes accommodation, program costs, supervision, some social activities, field trips, working locations, presentations by experts and the final and awarding event at the iWater Event. It does not include transport, some meals, other daily costs. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (like plane tickets and some local travel), meals during working days and other personal costs.

Note: The fee for participants from Spain who do not need accommodation, are 125 euros, including the above arrangements (without accommodation in Barcelona).

During past editions participants often successfully arranged financial compensation for their Wetskills participation from their university or employer.
