Accommodation for the Staff Training Week 2022 will be pre-booked by us centrally at a hotel in Linz. Participants will individually book their rooms using the allocated quota.

Hotel booking instructions will be sent out to the registered participants in time with all the additional information.

We would like to highlight that bus shuttles will be organized to all venues, according to the schedule of the programme. Thereby, the meeting point will be in front of the hotel we will collaborate with, we therefore strongly recommend not to book individidual hotels to avoid unnecessary complications.
