Programme Overview

A more detailed programme including timings will be available here in March 2017

Conference workshops

Workshops will run for one and a half hours each day from Monday 17th – Wednesday 19th July. We ask that you attend one workshop theme for the three sessions. This should be organised at a country level such that as a country team you have representation across all of the themes.

The workshop themes are as follows. More details, including confirmed speakers, will follow shortly.
