European Training Programme 2018-2019: Unlocking the Workings of the EU

Module 3

Learn more about how the EU institutions and policy-making works through the European Training Programme.

TRAINING OVERVIEW:

The programme aims at providing a thorough understanding of the EU’s internal workings on a variety of different topics, ranging from external relations in trade, energy and investment to security, innovation, and banking reforms.

Offering 12 topic-specific sessions,  the participants will be able to gain multiple insights from different backgrounds. In particular, each session will be constructed in two parts, the first of which will feature a keynote speaker from the EU institutions, who will provide an institutional perspective and introduction to the specific topic.

The second part of each session will encompass a contribution from the rest of the panel, the composition of which varies each week according to the topic in question. Generally speaking, the second part of the panel will be comprised of two experts: one corporate and one academic or expert speaker from NGOs, Academia, Private Sector, Industrial Associations etc.

Each session will also include a short break between the two parts, which will give the participants ample opportunity to exchange ideas with the speakers.

In this way, you will leave the training having gained a comprehensive view on a vast number of EU-interested issues.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

The programme is dedicated to diplomats, EU officials, the private sector, NGOs, and individuals who are interested in deepening their knowledge on the workings of the EU institutions.
