GENiE meeting

March 20 – 22, 2019

Organizers: Sophie Jarriault and Peter Meister

COST BM1408  is organizing the final action meeting of GENiE in Switzerland.

Date & Location

20 – 22 March 2019, Hotel Alfa Soleil Kandersteg, Switzerland


Reimbursement by COST

Up to 53 Action participants will be reimbursed by COST. The reimbursement will be EUR 260 for food and accommodation (2 nights, 4 meals) and a maximum of EUR 300 for travel expenses.
If the budget situation allows, we may be able to reimburse additional meals / nights through COST and possibly also higher travel costs, but this cannot be determined until early 2019.
Because of these budget restraints and as the train fare in Switzerland will cost CHF 160.00, we recommend to book your travels as early as possible in order to make sure to get best possible rates.

After successful registration, we will send you and invoice which is due for payment within 5 working days
There are only a limited numbers of single rooms available, which will be allocated based on registration date (first come first serve)

Extension of your stay

Getting to and from Kandersteg

Zurich (2h22min), Geneva (3h8min) and Basel (2h33min) airports are much better connected to the public transport in Switzerland and you will find better value flights for these destinations. There are also a limited number of flights to Bern airport though it is not so conveniently accessible by public transport (1h37min to Kandersteg)
