EU presidency

Preparing Member States for the Presidency of the Council of the EU

EIPA has been assisting rotating presidencies for over 20 years by building up the knowledge of public officials and politicians on the practice of EU policy processes and the skills necessary for the successful management of the Presidency. We provide both comprehensive “à la carte” training (targeting essential competences) and tailor- made large-scale training programmes with a variety of modules, so that every official involved in the rotating presidency benefits directly and individually from a distinct and recognised active learning method.

Since 2010, we provided Presidency trainings for the following EU Member States:
