Training Activities in Europe

Phase 2 of AUDIS - the training phase - consists of a 3-day-seminar at the University of Leuven, Belgium (4-6 June 2008) where participants will have the chance to gather and discuss the topics they selected during phase 1 of the project. The event will be followed by a training period at international relation offices at European universities. These traineeships will enable participants from African universities to gain hands-on experience related to the topics they selected. At the end of the training period there will be a feed-back seminar taking place at the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium (23-25 June 2008), in order to assess the results and to plan the following activities.
