Venue and Access

The Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Inspectability (RAMI) workshop will take place at the Daresbury Laboratory, near Warrington. There is very limited parking at the Daresbury Laboratory and STFC will be providing a coach from three local hotels to Daresbury Laboratory for the site visits on the 24th March and the workshop on the 25th March.  We encourage all delegates to use this option where possible.
