Registration for the FNF events from Friday to Sunday is not compulsory. However, in order to take part in the EP visit on Monday and to receive any allowances you must register.
EP visit – mandatory for reimbursement
In order to receive travel reimbursement and the allowance, it is mandatory to take part in the official visit to the European Parliament on Monday, 5 September, 10:00–11:30.
On Monday afternoon (after the mandatory EP visit) we will schedule talks with MEPs and other relevant politicians to be prepared in workshops during the weekend. If you are interested in taking part in these talks, please make sure to reserve time until about 15:00 on Monday afternoon when planning your departure.
We have organised hotel accommodation close to the event venue and the EU facilities, as an option. Please state your accommodation preferences in the registration form.
