Through this website and project's portal the participants will have access to all materials necessary for their preparation (suggested reading, relevant websites, guidelines etc) and a common workspace for uploading and downloading educational materials. Moreover, all the information regarding the training course such as the course description, the daily programme, travelling and accommodation guidelines are also accessible through the website.
