    Methodology

    The three-day intensive course offers the possibility to meet with experts from EU institutions, Member States as well as the private sector. The different perspectives of our experienced trainers will support you in applying complex rules to your practical day-to-day work. To achieve the best results, a mix of learning methods will be applied in the course.

    Our approach combines the three stages of learning to ensure that the participants obtain the best possible understanding of the applied rules:

    1) Identification of the main rules and principles,
    2) Appreciation of the complexities and limitation of the principles,
    3) Application of the rules and principles.

    The participants will be actively involved in the course. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunity to present your own issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

    Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the course. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.
