Information and training sessions are being organised for Open Day volunteers.

The Open Days Organising Committee is offering information and training sessions every Thursday in March from 2.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. in the Main Building Auditorium. It is important that volunteers attend these sessions to familiarise themselves with the practical arrangements for the two Open Days and with the main messages to be conveyed to the general public in order to make the event a success.

General information will be given at each session, followed by information on a specific theme.

The sessions will be organised as follows:

2.00 - 2.45 p.m. : first part - general information
