For YSF applicants selected by the YSF Committee to take part in the YSF, FEBS meets the cost of registration and accommodation and some travel costs for the YSF and Congress, as set out on the YSF applications page, through a FEBS YSF grant. By applying to the YSF you are indicating you meet the eligibility criteria for the event and will abide by use of the FEBS YSF grant as set out at on the YSF applications page.

Travel Insurance

You must not attend the YSF nor the FEBS 2021 Congress if you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or are required to place yourself in quarantine. You should seek and follow the advice of your government before booking travel for the YSF and before travelling to the event. You are solely responsible for making your own appropriate travel and other insurance arrangements for the YSF. FEBS, Dekon, HDBMB and SBD shall not be liable to you for any losses incurred as a result of travel restrictions being placed against you or against certain countries due to COVID-19.

Modification and Cancellation of the YSF

The YSF organizers are intending to run the YSF as a physical event, but if the organizers decide at any time that it is not possible to continue with a physical event due to pandemic or other such restrictions, the YSF may be held as an online meeting. The YSF organizers will give you as much advance notice as possible of whether the physical YSF is going ahead. The YSF organizers reserve the right to modify the programme, whether physical or online, which is published as an indication only.

We will only cancel the YSF as a result of circumstances outside of our reasonable control, including (but not limited to) pandemic, natural disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire or closure of airports.

Neither FEBS nor HDBMB nor SBD nor Dekon shall be held liable for any costs or losses incurred as a result of cancellation of the YSF.

Disclaimer

The YSF organizers take all reasonable care in making arrangements, and shall follow all available guidance from the Croatian government in relation to making the YSF COVID-19 safe. The YSF organizers act only as agents in securing hotels, transport and travel services, and shall in no event be liable for acts or omissions in the event of injury, damage, loss, accident, delay or irregularity of any kind whatsoever during arrangements organized through contractors. Hotel and transportation services are subject to the terms and conditions under which they are offered to the general public.

In the absence of any negligence or other breach of duty by FEBS, HDBMB, SBD or Dekon, these parties shall not be responsible for any bodily injury, illness, death or property damage (including theft) sustained by participants during the YSF.

In any event, neither FEBS nor HDBMB nor SBD nor Dekon accept liability for damages or costs in the event of bodily injury, death, property damage, illness, disruption to travel plans and costs incurred as a result of events outside of the reasonable control of FEBS, HDBMB, SBD or Dekon, including (but not limited to) pandemic, natural disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire or closure of airports.
