2017 European Statistical Training Programme

Discover the 2017 European Statistical Training Programme!

The purpose of the European Statistical Training Programme (ESTP) is to provide European statisticians the opportunity to participate in international training courses, workshops and seminars at postgraduate level. Courses under the ESTP have a truly international dimension to meet the challenges of comparable statistics at European and international level. Courses focus on harmonised European concepts and legislation, as well as the implementation practices at national level. 

The programme is coordinated by Eurostat. Courses are delivered either at Eurostat premises in Luxembourg or in national training sites of EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.

The ESTP core programme 2017 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. It comprises courses in Official Statistics, IT applications, Research and Development and Statistical Management. Through a balanced combination of theory and practice and a variety of approaches (workshops, group discussions, lectures and exercises) the training is intended to provide adequate solutions, including, in some cases, the simulation of real work situations.
