Admission to this Summer School is open to all who are active in this area, in the widest sense of the word (as a researcher, a legal professional, a professional in the industry…). Master’s and PhD students are also welcome to apply for admission. Applicants will be selected based on qualifications and motivation, and a broad perspective of opinions will be considered, as we believe that conflicting opinions and diverse backgrounds nourish fruitful discussions and scientific progress. We're committed to offering education that includes everyone, making sure all participants feel valued and supported in their learning.

For your application, we ask you to provide us with the following documents:
- a motivation letter of maximum 400 words; and
- a CV, preferably in the standard European format (for more information, click here).

If you are applying for a scholarship, please also send us additional motivation why you are a highly qualified candidate who should be awarded this scholarship.

Please note that all lectures will be in English, and we expect participants to be adequately proficient to follow the lectures and have a discussion in English. We require no proof of language proficiency however, as obtaining such proof can be time- and money consuming.

Applications will be open until 30 April 2024, midnight through the form that you can find here.

Your personal data will be processed solely to assess whether you are a suitable candidate for the Summer School and to contact you for additional information. Should you not be selected or decide not to withdraw your candidacy, your personal data will be deleted once admissions are closed. If you are selected, your personal data will be used in the context of this summer school (i.e., for the performance of our contract), and to inform you about future events organised by HALL or EFKZ for Digital Health or future editions of this Summer School, or newsletters relating to the topics covered during the Summer School. You will always be able to unsubscribe from such communications, and can object to us processing your personal data for these objectives by sending us an e-mail. For more information on how the VUB processes personal data and your rights as a data subject, please click here.



There is no application fee, and the tuition fee is:
- 750 EUR for Master’s and PhD students;
- 1000 EUR for everyone else.
The tuition fee includes all the classes and course materials, but not accommodation or meals. For more information about accommodation in Brussels, please consult the VUB accommodation website.

Once you have been accepted into the program, we will send you an invoice that will need to be paid within 30 days. Your registration will be final after receiving payment. Please note that the following cancellation policy applies:
- if you cancel before 1 May, 50% of the tuition fee will be reimbursed;
- if you cancel from 1 May, there will be no reimbursement of the tuition fee.

We offer two scholarships in the form of a full tuition fee waiver for highly qualified participants who reside a country which is designated as an LDC by the Committee for Development of the UN (for the most recent list, click here), and who would otherwise not be able to afford this course. People who are awarded this scholarship will still be responsible for their own accommodation, travel and meals.
