European Statistical Training Programme (ESTP)


The European Statistical Training Programme (ESTP) aims at providing European statisticians with the opportunity to participate in international training courses, workshops and seminars at postgraduate level in order to meet the challenges of comparable statistics at European and international level.

The programme, coordinated by Eurostat, is tailored to meet the specific needs of the European Statistical System (ESS) by taking into account the different levels of statistical knowledge and working experiences. Courses focus on harmonised European concepts and legislation, as well as the implementation practices at national level.

The ESTP courses are delivered at Eurostat premises in Luxembourg or in national training sites of EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.

In 2021 the ESTP classroom courses are increasingly complemented by online formats, reaching out to wider audiences. As of this year, the ESTP catalogue has also adopted a new rolling format to allow for flexible responses to emerging needs.
