E&IA Activities

In the frame of E&I A the JRC offers specialised workshops, conferences and advanced training courses, with a focus on experts from the new Member State, Candidate Countries, Potential Candidate Countries, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries, European Neighbourhood Policy partner Countries and Russia.

As in previous years, a series of workshops are planned in specialised areas for Scientific & Technical support to EU policies, which correspond to well-established JRC core competencies. The main objective of these workshops will be to assist the competent organisations with the scientific and technical methods and techniques underpinning EU policy implementation, to learn about the methods currently available in the present or potential candidates of the EU and discuss future implementation.

The workshops and other activities currently foreseen in 2014 for each JRC Institute can be consulted by clicking the respective Institute link below and then for further detail on a specific workshop's Reference. Updates during the year are possible. Some 2013 E&IA workshops did not take place yet and it is still possible to apply and participate (*).

Should you want to apply to participate in a workshop, or simply want to know more, please write to using the Reference in the subject! Applications must be made by sending your detailed CV and expression of your motivation.
