Practical Information

Deadline for Applications

Please apply here by 21st January 2024.

Participation Fees

  • 55€ for the FC delegates (FC delegates: the directly elected members of the FC; the members of JEF Europe’s Executive Board, and the national delegates. 

The FC delegates who register by the deadline are automatically accepted, and are invited to pay their participation fee and book their travel arrangements with no need to wait for the confirmation of the Secretariat.

What is a National Delegate? Each national section of JEF appoints ONE delegate to the FC: it can be the International Officer, the President, the Vice-President, etc. Please note that there is only ONE national delegate per section to the FC, regardless of the size of the section. Register as a national delegate ONLY if you were appointed as such by your section: we will double check with each section the name of their national delegate.

  • 80€ for Observers

An Observer is a member of JEF who is not a National Delegate (and so has no voting rights to the FC), but who is interested in taking part in the discussions, learning more about the work of the FC, and attending an international JEF event.

Observers should wait for the confirmation by the European Secretariat (rolling basis) before issuing the payment of their registration fee and booking their travel arrangements. Please note that if we receive more applications from Observers than the number of spots available, a waiting list will be put in place, in case of cancellations. 

Please note that paying the participation fee or booking your transport to Tartu before receiving the confirmation email from the Secretariat will in  no way guarantee your participation.

  • Participation fees of all participants should arrive by 8th February 2024. Once you pay, please send a proof of payment to For Observers selected after this date, the payment should arrive after receiving their confirmation email. 

If you are an FC Delegate, your participation is automatically confirmed and you do not need to wait for our confirmation to send your participation fee.
