  3. Pay the registration fee. The Matera week is free but an additional EUR 100 deposit is required along with your registration fee to secure a place and will be returned when you arrive in Matera.

You will be considered registered ONLY when the registration fee has been PAID IN FULL* in one of the above fee categories, we have received your completed registration form, AND we have sent you a confirmation email.

Notes:

  • Please note that banks can charge high transfer fees that are not always apparent and exchange rates must be accounted for, as well.
  • You must therefore ensure that any bank charges are paid separately and not deducted from the transfer amount.
  • We must also receive the full amount stated in your fee category after your bank factors in their foreign exchange rate.
  • If there is a shortfall in the course fee received, we will request you to clear the outstanding balance by making another payment, which will incur further costs for you or your sponsor. 
  • If you or your sponsoring institution can only pay by bank transfer from any other currency to Spatial Ecology’s bank accounts (GBP/EUR/USD), contact info@spatial-ecology.net for details.
  • If you or your sponsoring institution need an invoice/remittance contact info@spatial-ecology.net for details.
