Best Practices

Support from the
European Commission
and the Member States

EIPA receives financial support from its member countries and the European Commission. Besides these statutory contributions, in 2019 the host countries of EIPA Luxembourg and EIPA Barcelona subsidised them financially, as well as contributing to housing and related costs.

“The course was an excellent opportunity to understand the core features of EU impact assessments. The program is brilliantly organised, combining theoretical aspects and practical exercises.”

Training courses

Our open enrollment training courses are the perfect example of how we bridge theory and practice when it comes to the latest developments and upcoming challenges in key areas of European affairs and public management. They offer participants from all over Europe the chance to get involved in practice oriented discussions with leading experts and counterparts from other countries and institutions.

Where do our participants come from?


In 2019, we offered and hosted more than 500 contract activities, enabling us to reach a wide audience not only at the EU Institutions, bodies and agencies, but also in the EU Member States, candidate countries and other countries. We are pleased that our services were once again requested by such distinguished partners and that we implemented an extensive range of activities.

Services to the
European Union

Since 2002, we have won four successive multi-annual framework contracts for services to support learning and development of EU staff in the field of European and international affairs, governance and EU law. While we managed the first two on our own, the third and fourth were won by a consortium led by us together with the College of Europe and Lattanzio Learning. In 2016, we also won the framework contract on policy making and strategic management, in partnership with Capita Business Services.
