Testimonials from previous European courses
"I found a lot of the information useful for ongoing applications. What I enjoyed most about the course was our participation was sought and we were able to relate the exercises to our own projects. Excellent."
"Informal and interactive and a potentially 'dry' subject was made interesting."
