Multiannual framework contracts with the EU

Multiannual framework contracts with the EU

Since 2021, EIPA has been managing the multiannual EU framework contract covering Learning and development services in the fields of European and international affairs, EU governance, law, policymaking and strategy building.

This is the fifth successive multiannual framework contract on EU governance that EIPA has won since 2003, previously in partnership with the College of Europe and Lattanzio Learning.

These contracts cover almost all the EU institutions, bodies and agencies.

In 2022, we organised 474 activities with a total of 7693 participants.

These activities cover EU law, EU decision-making and economics; Better Regulation, strategic foresight and new approaches to policymaking; and a range of EU policies including the environment, asylum and migration and EU external action. They are organised in close collaboration with the responsible unit or division.
While we draw on a broad network of external specialists and partner organisations, most of EIPA’s own experts contribute to these large-scale framework contracts. This means that we are familiar with the latest developments in EU policies and processes, as well as having direct contact with actors across the EU universe. Input and insights we receive from EU practitioners about policy issues and perspectives enrich all EIPA’s activities.

The illustrative table below shows the main activities of this sort that we have delivered on a regular basis for the Commission, Parliament and Council.
