Bulgarian Presidency

Preparation for the Bulgarian Presidency

“Trainings for improving the capacity of the Bulgarian administration for participation in the EU decision-making process and for fullfilment of Republic of Bulgaria membership obligations”

The project awarded to EIPA in January 2017, as the lead of a consortium with ENA (École Nationale d’Administration), was a recognition of our long-established reputation in Presidency preparation for EU Member States, as well as of our role as a trusted partner for the Bulgarian public administration. EIPA was honoured to lead the preparation of the first Presidency rotation for Bulgaria since it joined the EU in 2007.

Between March and October 2017, EIPA and its consortium partner implemented 54 group training sessions in Sofia (BG) and six group training sessions in Brussels (BE) for the following target groups:

  • Future chairs and deputy-chairs of Council working groups
  • Officials performing various functions in the national EU affairs coordination mechanism
  • Policy coordinators

The main objective of this project was to improve and upgrade the relevant knowledge and skills of Bulgarian civil servants and public officials in preparation for the 2018 Bulgaria’s Presidency of the Council of the EU in 2018.
