Event Description

Target group
All those who need to be able to find EU information quickly and/or to update their research skills in EU-related matters: EU officials, national civil servants, consultants, information professionals, documentalists, translators, as well as people working in the commercial sector and for NGOs.

Description
This two-day course provides participants with a comprehensive and structured guide to a wide-range of free and commercial internet resources dealing with European issues. The working sessions allow participants to improve and/or update their knowledge of EU information sources, and their abilities to use them effectively.

Method
This course will offer demonstrations of the most useful websites and databases, combined with ample opportunities for participants to develop hands-on expertise by exploring the websites themselves in order to find targeted information. Each participant will be able to use a PC with high-speed internet connection during the whole duration of the seminar.

Objectives
At the end of the training course, the participants will have:
• a good knowledge of the key EU information sources and search techniques;
• practical experience in using the main EU and non-EU websites and databases;
• a toolbox for finding EU targeted information.

They will be able to find quickly and efficiently:
• legislation, case law and summaries of legislation;
• working documents, policy papers and press releases;
• public procurement, call for tenders, grants and loans;
• contacts information, ‘who’s who’ and ‘who’s doing what’ in the EU;
• statistical data;
• bibliographical, translation, linguistic and terminological information.
