Note: This type of training is developed for decision makers and clients requiring general knowledge and precise insight into the EU policies, funds and related processes; the stress is on the knowledge needed for a sound, effective development management within the beneficiary institution. The training is organized locally (regionally). In order to respond to the expressed interest of the clients for individual work, "one on one" training courses and work in small groups with related requirements are available.

The training courses will be announced quarterly, in advance, in order to enable the clients to select and plan the attendance of the courses specific to their needs.
