The course is not targeted towards one professional sector in particular and is therefore open to representatives from public administrations, business, finance, law, media, or non-governmental organisations at national, regional and local level. The course is also suitable for students. The summer course will meet at the Hotel Adriatic in Vrboska on the island of Hvar/Croatia. The hotel has recently undergone a substantial renovation programme, but and just as in previous years, we were able to negotiate a substantial discount which will bring accommodation costs down to around 25 € per night, per participant. For further information, please go to http://www.epicseminars.com/id17.html where you will find a precise seminar schedule, which is also attached at the end of this message. Should you wish to get in touch with us directly, then of course, you may just respond to this email. I am very much looking forward to hearing from you and would be delighted, if you were able to join us.

With best wishes
