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). Three 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 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.
Expert seminars: these are events aiming to develop methodological tools to enhance the effectiveness of EU EOMs on specific areas of assessment. Participants are selected on the basis of their proven expertise and mission experience in specific domains (e.g. ICTs, social network analysis, voter registration, data management, etc.). Participation is upon invitation only.
Please verify carefully the type of training event before applying as well as the criteria for eligibility. You can also refer to the How to apply section for further information on the application criteria.
During the Covid-19 period, training activities have been conducted remotely. An indicative calendar of training activities for 2021 is currently under preparation and will be announced soon.
