Please note that types, subjects and calendar for the trainings organised by EODS are determined by the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI) of the European Commission and the European External Action Service (EEAS). Two types of events/courses are typically held:
Trainings for Core Team members: these are beginners courses targeting eligible applicants with little or no core team experience in EU EOMs. Such trainings aim to provide the necessary skills and knowledge to work as a member of the core team in EU EOMs. Participation is upon selection after online application.
Workshops: these are advanced courses targeting experienced EU EOM analysts. This type of events aims to encourage peer discussion, experience sharing, methodological updates and to increase knowledge on specific subjects pertaining to the EOM areas of analysis and assessment. Participation is upon selection after online application or upon invitation.
Webinars: these are short on-line gatherings that intend to raise awareness of the EU EOM community about emerging issues and also to respond to the high level of interest in receiving more information on these areas of rapidly developing methodology. Typically, EODS Webinars will last up to 2 hours and an expert on the relevant field will be invited as keynote speaker.
