On the 14th and the 15th of November 2014 the project PACE will organize in Florence, Italy, the first BarCamp for European Project Managers to share experiences and ideas through an open and informal approach.
A BarCamp is a “Un-conference” born from the desire of people to share and learn from each other in an open environment. It is an open and self-organized event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. At a BarCamp all attendees come to actively participate to the event.
All those who come are supposed to present their ideas, experiences, knowledge, doubts and questions on any topic they are interested in, of course related to European Project Planning and Management, with the purpose to open a discussion and a knowledge sharing experience with the others participants.
The programme of the event will be decided during the event itself.
There will be a board available, with the possibility, for each participant to “book” a time slot (approximately 30 minutes each), to shortly address their ideas/doubts/questions/experiences and openly discuss them with all those that might be interested in.
There will be parallel time frames, and participants will be free to join them according to their interests.
There will be 5 discussions areas with tables, chairs and a board to be used to write down ideas.
Of course there will be plenty of time to network!

Participation is free of charge, hotel and meals costs are covered by the organizers, and participants are simply asked to cover their travel costs. The registration for this year event is already closed, however PACE will organize another BarCamp from the 7th to the 9th of October 2015, so stay tuned!
