A total maximum of 135€/day may be offered as hospitality to HCPs in the context of at least 6h of scientific program. If the scientific program lasts less than 6h, maximum 23€ of hospitality per full hour of science can be offered. Please note that these amounts are all inclusive (drinks, VAT, room rental,…).
