Cancellation policy: Refund of full payment minus a handling fee of €40 by September 30th, 2018; no refund thereafter.

We will have a very limited number of spots for volunteers for the 2018 Champalimaud Research Symposium. Volunteers will receive free entrance to the symposium, and will help with setup and tasks such as registration and site visits throughout the symposium days. It may be necessary for volunteers to miss a small part of the symposium programme due to their duties, but we will accommodate as much as possible your preferences as to which sessions you will miss.
Please note that since the set-up will happen in the days and weeks before the symposium, you MUST be available for some hours of work over the weekend beforehand (20th & 21st October), and ideally for dates before that as well. If you will not be available before the 20th October, please clearly state this in your application.
To apply for a volunteer position, please send a written paragraph/image/video or any other media describing yourself, your interest in the symposium and your motivation for volunteering, to symposium@research.
We are pleased to announce a limited number of fee waivers and travel grants to symposium participants.
All travel-grants and fee waivers are awarded purely on merit of the submitted abstract.
To apply for an award, please go through our usual registration and abstract submission process. At the end of the abstract submission, please select the option “I wish to apply for a travel award”.
Please note that the deadline for abstract submission is 27th July.
