Hands-on Training for experts in Standardisation

Brussels, 22 January 2018

  • To the members of the permanent committee on Standardisation

 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On Thursday 25th January, from 9h00 to 12h50, we give a hands-on training on standardisation for our new experts. You can remotely join in, learn and actively participate by clicking on the following link: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/295928229 - But you do need a camera, micro and headphones to join our training.

The objective of the training is to provide the necessary “skills” to our ETUC representatives, so that they feel “competent” when attending CEN meetings or standardisation meetings in general.

Please do not hesitate to share this e-mail (training course) in your national network. Our objective is to build up Trade Union capacity on standardisation and increase the influence in standard setting activities.

With very best regards

Guido DE JONGH, Katrin Behnke, Ben Eghan
