On this page you find information about reaching Madrid and La Cristalera, and practical information for the school duration.
Visas are not required for citizens of most European countries, permanent residents of a Schengen state, as well as for a series of other countries. If you need a visa a personal invitation letter may be necessary (see annex documents right below), which you may request from the Organizing Committee. Conditions such as the remaining validity of your passport may also apply. Here are some documents to assist you. We leave it under your responsibility that you check that these conditions still hold at the time of your departure.
Madrid can be easily reached by train, which we encourage you to consider, to minimize the carbon footprint resulting from your participation in the school. Yet, in some cases this may not be practical. In case you use the plane, consider avoiding taking several flights in a row, as each take-off and landing highly contributes to carbon emission.
Information to reach the school place, 30km North of Madrid, will be provided at a later stage.
