30th June 2022

As stakeholders of the ORIENTING project, you are invited to participate in a brainstorming session on the main results of the open consultation process that was launched on the 5th of May. The Orienting team has processed your valuable comments and suggestions about the LCSA draft methodology, so now it’s time to focus on the most relevant points.

The event will be divided into two parts: in the first one, we will present in more detail the draft ORIENTING LCSA methodology and the key points that emerged from the consultation. In the second part, participants will have the opportunity to interact in the brainstorming session on the main themes of the open consultation. During the registration you can express your preference to participate in only one of the two parts or in both.

To ensure the effectiveness of the workshop, the numbers of participants is limited, and the ‘first come, first served’ rule is applied.

This is a private event for ORIENTING stakeholders. 

Not registered yet? Please register at Orienting – Stakeholders registration.

This workshop will be open upon registration. Deadline for the registration is June the 26th.
