   programme and are used for group discussions on a selected topic. The
   workshop leader acts as the moderator of these discussions. Workshops are
   split into 2 sessions on 2 days of 1.5 hours each. On the last day the
   participants of the workshop need to present a short 10-15 minute summary
   about the results of the workshop during the plenary session.
