3rd ENTeR-chILD Training School Lisbon


We have the pleasure to invite you to the Third ENTeR-chILD Training School, which will take place in Lisbon from the 11th to the 13th of March 2020. For three days, you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with international colleagues.

Lisbon is a historical city full of stories to tell, where the sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15ºC. A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where the cuisine is dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved bacalhau (salted cod), and where you’ll find hotels and restaurants to suit every taste, budget and requirement. You will find a city full of authenticity old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, as you will find out if you meet someone and ask them to explain, with lots of gestures and repetition, where the best place is to listen to Fado. After all, Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors.

Lisbon was the fifth World’s Leading City Break Destination for 2019!

The meeting will take place at the SANA Metropolitan that is located in the middle of both business and academic "worlds" of Lisbon. At the Entrecampos and Sete Rios neighborhoods, you can find a number of companies and just nearby, the Cidade Universitária is the pinnacle of higher education in the Portuguese capital. With a spacious, contemporary decor, the SANA Metropolitan is a cosmopolitan hotel, which offers special comfort for both leisure, and business trips to the city. Moreover, since it is located close to major roads, it is the perfect choice for people who want to get into or out of the city and at the same time reach the center of Lisbon.
