OPEN DAY – 2006

Thursday 29 June 2006

Centre for Cross Border Studies

39 Abbey Street


SESSION 1: 11.00am – 1.00pm & SESSION 2: 2.00pm – 4.00pm

The Centre for Cross Border Studies in Armagh is holding its first Open Day on Thursday 29th June 2006. This will provide an opportunity to highlight some of the success stories of cross-border cooperation and promote interest in practical cross-border co-operation in the border region.

The day aims to raise awareness of the work of the Centre and improve an understanding of the services which the Centre can offer.

The Open Day is organised into two sessions, one beginning at 11.00am and repeated at 2.00pm. Each session will consist of a short introduction from Andy Pollak on the work of the Centre for Cross Border Studies followed by a choice of training sessions, clinics and networking meetings.

The training sessions offer a chance to use Border Ireland, the online guide to cross-border activities in Ireland. People will be shown how to make the best use of the website and to take part in an ‘ideas workshop’ where you can discuss your ideas for cross-border co-operation and how they relate to work that has been funded in the past.

The Open Day offers the chance to talk to staff of the Centre with expertise in cross-border cooperation in sectors such as health, education and spatial planning. You can also hear about some of the specific initiatives organised by the Centre in those areas and also cross-border mobility and training for public sector officials.

Car parking is available at the Centre and refreshments will be served.
