Activities (workshops, training courses and conferences)

In the frame of the Enlargement and Integration Action the JRC offers specialised workshops, conferences and advanced training courses within its areas of competence. The workshops are set up to allow competent organisations in the new EU countries, Candidate Countries, Potential Candidate Countries, Horizon 2020 Associated Countries, and on an ad-hoc basis European Neighbourhood Policy Countries, to study the scientific and technical methods and techniques underpinning EU policy implementation. They also provide an opportunity for EU organisations to learn about the methods currently used in those countries and for both parties to discuss how the EU legislation should be implemented in the future.
