EIA event


You may recall from the last ALLICE meeting and/or it's minutes that we were working with the EIA to develop a customised event for ALLICE members in Birmingham

We now have a commitment from the EIA to deliver a half day (4 hour) event covering the following topic areas

The European Union - how it works
EUR-Lex - legislation, preparatory documents, case law
National implementing measures

The format of the event will be a series of presentations followed by hands-on exercises. We are hoping to run this event in September

We now need to find a suitable venue for the event but, before I start approaching local academic/training institutions, I was wondering if there might be an ALLICE member who might be able to 'volunteer' suitable accommodation, eg, an IT training facility or similar where both presentation equipment and PCs are available. We had 18 positive responses to the questionnaire but, once a date is fixed that will almost certainly reduce.

Please let me know if you feel you might be able to help with this
