Travel, Accommodation and Meals
Please note that the Summer School organisation will not cover the travel and accommodation expenses of participants. Lunches and transfer between the airport/train station, hotel and Summer School location will however be arranged by the JRC.

The best way to access Ispra by air is via the Malpensa International Airport which is at some 30 km from JRC Ispra.
As alternative, Milano Linate airport (at around 95 km) or Milano train station could be used.
The JRC will arrange a free shuttle bus service to transfer participants on certain bus schedules and will take participants to their Hotels.
Also the same organised bus service will be picking up participants in the morning from their hotel and bringing to the JRC site.
