Training courses

Our open enrolment 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.

Contract activities

In 2020, we offered and hosted 448 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 and other countries. By offering our activities online within the space of a few weeks, we were able to continue delivery of our contracted activities. 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 2020, we have won five successive multiannual 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.

EIPA’s publications address key issues for public management, EU governance and EU law. The publications draw on the insights obtained when EIPA staff deliver activities in the EU institutions or Member States’ administrations and on the exchanges of national public-sector practices that we organise and our participation in the European scientific and policy community.
