ESI and the Citizens' Pact for South Eastern Europe are organizing a two days training seminar in Novi Sad on the topic "How to make a difference through policy-relevant research" from 22 – 24th June 2007.

Participants of the seminar will be chosen from candidates selected according to the following criteria: they should be under 35, able to speak and work in English, have good computer skills, be involved in research work or want to experience in the issue. The training seminar will be designed for a maximum of 20 participants.
