Training Programme (ESTP) - European Statistical System (ESS)

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.

Feel free to explore our ESTP catalogue and identify the courses that meet your needs.

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 either online or at Eurostat premises in Luxembourg or in national training sites of EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.


Who may apply?

Officials and employees of National Statistical Institutes or corresponding Other National Authorities (ONAs) of EU Member States, EFTA countries, candidate countries and potential candidate countries as well as Eurostat can apply.

Occasionally, and on an individual basis, applicants from other administrations, international organisations and statistical offices of non-European countries may be admitted.
