The Seminar, a regular service provided free to our Members, is aimed at improving the effectiveness of standards-making in ETSI by developing special skills in those people actively involved in our work.
The ETSI Seminar takes the form of a workshop where various aspects of the standards-making is examined in a very practical way.
Although designed primarily for newcomers to the Institute, the fact that ETSI is constantly evolving means that even those individuals with an extensive experience of the Institute and its work find it beneficial to attend.
The work of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP™) is also covered.
The ETSI Seminar is an important step in the orientation programme for new members. It facilitates their active participation in ETSI or 3GPP - a must if your organization has just joined ETSI. It also is an opportunity to meet key personnel in the ETSI Secretariat.
As well as describing the structure and organization of the Institute and the partnership projects, the seminar provides a detailed look at ETSI's On-Line services and other tools for electronic working, which have dramatically improved the efficiency of the standards-making process. It also examines our range of services and responsibilities, which extends well beyond just the production of standards.
