The information obtained will be used only to sort participants according to the foreseen activities.

On August the 10th a letter to all applicants will be submitted indicating if they are accepted for participation. Due to space limitation we have to restrict number of participants to 10 for course 1 and 15 for course 2.

Places will be given after the principle of ‘who registered first’. However as EURL we are obliged to prioritize applications from NRL's in the EU Member states.
In case of overbooking, in order to enhance the participation of representatives from different countries, one applicant per country will be selected.
