The BMSD sessions will be held at the Chambre des Metiers that is not only in very close proximity to both the University of Luxembourg and the CRP Henri Tudor but is also conveniently reachable by bus (for around 20 minutes) from both the city center and the airport. Luxembourg is the capital of the Grand Duchy, one of the founder states of the European Union, where about 43 per cent of the half million inhabitants are foreign. This multicultural ambience of day-to-day contact with people from the four corners of the Earth gives the small state an astonishingly cosmopolitan outlook - not least thanks to the European institutions and the financial center. It is however far easier to get around the capital (100 000 inhabitants) than it is in Berlin or Paris. The distances are short. There is a lively nightlife scene around the fashionable bars of Hollerich, the Grund, and Clausen. Furthermore, there are plenty of sports, leisure activities as well as events: cinemas and climbing parks, mountain bike trails and an enormous cultural range - from Jazz in the medieval city, contemporary art at MUDAM, theatre in every language or classical music in one of the most beautiful new buildings in Luxembourg, the Philharmonie. All this is set against the romantic backdrop of the medieval city (a UNESCO world heritage site since 1994), the castle in the richy-forested north and the vineyards - along the Mosel.
