The Robert Bosch Stiftung has provided funding for the development and the first two courses of the European Palliative Care Academy. This makes it possible to offer a course worth about 15.000 € per participant at an extremely reduced rate. Participants are expected to pay a course fee of 2.000 € as a contribution towards teaching staff, administration costs and teaching materials.
Participants are expected to cover their travel costs, accommodation costs and personal expenses. General support from the applicant’s employer is expected; the employers are asked to contribute to the travel expenses of their employee. A limited amount of grants subsidising travel expenses are available from the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
