The EODS – Phase II project started in February 2016. The EODS team comprises Konrad Olszewski (Project Director), Giovanna Maiola (Training Coordinator), and Vera Lourenço (Regional Coordinator) as key experts. Giorgio Grasso (Editorial & IT specialist) supports the project in all information technology and editorial activities, while Sebastiano Mori (Project Officer) is responsible for administrative matters.
Funded by the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR), the new EODS II project builds up on the activities of EODS I in the areas of methodology, training of observers and electoral experts serving in EU EOMs, as well as capacity building of regional organisations and networks of citizen observers.
EODS II succeeds EODS I, which ran over the period 2013-2016. The EODS II team banks on the work done by their predecessors: Mark Stevens, Hannah Roberts and Anders Eriksson (NEEDS I – NEEDS II); Domenico Tuccinardi, Gillian Mc Cormack and Frank Balme (NEEDS III); Gilles Saphy, Holly Ruthrauff, Manuel Sanchez de Nogues and Barbara Smith (EODS I).
