Q: I am not European and/or my permanent residence is not in Europe. Can I still participate?

Yes you can! The majority of our participants will come from Europe, but we still have the possibility to also welcome participants from all over the world.

Q: What is included in the participation fee of the DEVELOPMENT LAB?

Included are: Participation in the three online masterclasses and the Lab on-site (5 days full-time), networking activities in the evenings, international mentors, workshop materials and technical equipment, public transport from hotel to lab location, lunch catering and snacks, appearance in our annual Booklet, 6 nights accommodation + breakfast in Lyon.

Q: What is not included in the participation fee of the DEVELOPMENT LAB?

Not included in the participation fee are your travel expenses, personal needs and dinners.

Q: Where will I stay during the Lab in Villeurbanne?

We know from the past that the full lab experience only comes into its own when we are also accommodated together. It helps you to network even more intensive, makes logistics easier and allows us to do activities together in the evenings. We have booked a place in Lyon where all the participants and mentors will stay. 

Q: I live on site. A hotel makes no sense for me. What happens then?

Participants who live at the location of the Lab do not have to stay in a hotel, of course. The participant fees for the Lab are a mixed calculation of all the services mentioned above. Therefore, we cannot offer discounted participation without a hotel.
