Reduced registration fee

EADV extends the opportunity for 100 attendees to attend its annual EADV Symposium at a discounted rate. Applicants can apply for a Reduced Registration Fee (RRF) by submitting a motivation letter in English.

This special offer applies to dermatologists, venereologists, students and trainees who are not financially supported by a third party to attend the event. Both EADV Members and Non-Members can apply following the criteria listed below.

The Reduced Registration Fee ticket varies depending on the country of residence (classification is made according to the World Bank classification by income).

100 spots are available, divided into 2 categories:

Reduced Registration Fee

Low and Lower-Middle income economies

50 PLACES

EUR 80

Reduced Registration Fee

Upper-Middle and High-Income economies

50 PLACES

EUR 100

The fee covers full registration to the EADV Symposium 2024 (Symposium Ticket)

Before applying for the Reduced Registration Fee (RRF), please carefully read the below Conditions to Apply and the Mandatory Criteria, to familiarise yourself with the application requirements, deadline, motivation letter details and procedures.

Conditions to apply:

  • Only one application per person can be submitted;
  • Group or Third-party applications/bookings will not be considered;
  • Each successful applicant must pay for their own RRF ticket; RRF for successful applicants must not be paid, sponsored or managed by companies, institutions, travel agencies or any other party. If a successful applicant receives the support of another party, they will automatically lose the advantage of the lower registration fee;
  • RRF applications must be submitted by the application closing date (Thursday, 2 May 2024). All applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered;
  • The selection of eligible RRF applications is based on a first-come, first-served basis (provided that the application has been successfully selected and the fee has been paid). This means that the available category might be sold out before the published deadlines. Please allow sufficient time in order to submit your RRF application;
  • The notification of a successful or unsuccessful application will be provided within 10 working days.

Mandatory criteria

  • Non-members can apply for an RRF, but only once.
    In order to be eligible to receive it another time, they need to apply for an EADV membership;
  • EADV active members are eligible to receive an RRF up to 3 times without submitting an abstract and more than 3 times by submitting an abstract. However:
    1. An RRF applicant is not eligible to receive the reduced fee for consecutive events.
      E.g.: a participant registered as an RRF recipient for 2023 Congress in Berlin is not eligible to receive it for the 2024 Symposium in Malta);
    2. A candidate applying for more than one grant (e.g. EADV Scholarship, etc.) can be selected only once within the same EADV Symposium; a candidate finalising and paying for an RRF can no longer be awarded another grant for the same event. Therefore, any other application submitted will be automatically cancelled;
    3. Applicants that paid a regular registration fee for the event before applying for an RRF cannot be taken into consideration for the RRF for the same event, since refunds are not possible;
  • A meaningful motivation letter written in English must be submitted to validate the RRF application.
    The motivation letter needs to be 150-300 words, specifying the reason(s) behind your motivation to attend the event.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL DEFINITION

Carefully read the below description to make sure you/your delegates are compliant with Malta’s regulations.

EADV Members are not designated as Healthcare Professionals by default

Please, define the correct status (HCP or Non-HCP) during the registration process.

Definition

According to the European Union Directive 2001/83 /EC (and amended version 2010/84/EU), the promotion of prescription only medicines should be directed solely at Healthcare Professionals or any person who is authorised to prescribe or handle them.

As a multidisciplinary audience will be attending the EADV Symposium, the delegates must  indicate if they are Healthcare Professionals (HCP) or Non-Healthcare Professionals (Non-HCP) to ensure compliance with these regulations.

Access to the different areas and sessions of the Symposium depends on the status as Healthcare Professional or as Non-Healthcare Professional. 

The Pharmaceutical Research Based Industry Malta Association (2014) defines HCP as:

Any member of the medical, dental, pharmacy or nursing professions or any other person who in the course of his or her professional activities may prescribe, purchase, supply or administer a medicinal product. “

Industry sessions and advertising

Sections of the code also relevant to a congress held in Malta:

Any such promotional material (excluding promotional aids) is accompanied by a suitable statement indicating countries in which the product is registered and makes clear that the product or use is not registered locally, and any such promotional material which refers to the prescribing information (indications, warnings etc.) authorized in a country or countries where the medicinal product is registered should be accompanied by an explanatory statement indicating that registration conditions differ internationally.

Satellite Symposia presenting data on the development, research or other issues related to prescription medicine can be restricted to Healthcare Professionals and Industry Participants only upon indication provided by the Industry Session Organizer. All promotional materials and marketing aids related to these industry sessions should be strictly limited to HCPs only.

Industry Session organisers could limit participation to certain representative groups independently from the EADV recommendations if deemed imperative to the achievement of the intended purpose of the Industry session. The organising company reserves the right to refuse single categories, in particular if not adequately related to the objective and purpose of the session.

The industry session organizer is responsible for the compliance of the session.

Other categories

STUDENTS are NOT considered as Healthcare Professionals under the current guidelines and will be automatically classified as NON-HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS.

PATIENT ASSOCIATION REPRESENTATIVES must indicate whether they are Healthcare Professionals or not at registration.
