FAQ

1 – What is the Society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom?

Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom (SRUK/CERU) is an independent and non-profit organisation without any political affiliation. It was created to promote communication within the community of Spanish Researchers working in the United Kingdom. This association also aims to help closing the gap between Scientists and the general public from British and Spanish societies. For further information, visit our web page www.sruk.org.uk or follow us in Facebook and Twitter.

4 – How much does it cost to participate?

This year, a small fee will be charged to register for the symposium. Unfortunately, in previous years, there has been a high number of registered attendees that did not show up, causing food waste and preventing potential members from attending (those that were not able to register) as the event was fully booked.

Members, out of Glasgow – £10
Members, Glasgow – £20
Non-members – £30
*Full refund is available until the 1st May 2018

*If you have any financial difficulty to pay for the fee, please contact us on symposium@sruk.org.uk.

There will be a Symposium dinner, to which you will need to register separately.
Please, check out the Symposium Dinner section.

5 – What is included in the registration?

The registration allows attendance to the Opening Ceremony on Friday 1st June 2018, and the two-day symposium (2nd and 3rd June 2018).

Saturday and Sunday lunches are also included.

The Symposium dinner (Saturday 2nd June 2018) is not included, and you will need to purchase it separately.

6 – Are there travel grants for the VI SRUK/CERU symposium attendants?

Depending on the funds available, the organization may cover part of the travel expenses. Members who had been selected for the activities at the Science Zone and live outside Glasgow will be prioritized. Please, check the Microgrants section of our web for more information in due course.
