Team member designation & Health insurance certificate

For the health insurance certificate we need scanned documents. We prefer the EU health insurance cards, but if anyone has his/her own insurance for abroad journeys then it will be totally fine.
We are only requesting these documents to be prepared in case any of you get injured during the event. A scanned copy of your papers will be with us even if you might forget to bring them to FS East. 🙂


For the team member designation we need a regular Excel file with the names and positions of the members with some regular contact information as well as the contacts of the additional members who might come with the team.
You need to fill out the following fields: team member’s name, position in the team, email address, cell phone number, in case of emergency phone number and birthday.
If you can not upload the final version of your team member designation until the deadline then please include your present members and if any changes occur, please let us know.
In case you add new members, your team member designation and health insurance certificate documents must be updated before the event. 

You can find a pre-made excel spreadsheet below, which you can fill for team member designation. If you made your document with the fields mentioned above, then it is also fine.
