Workshop: Southeast Europe and the EU – Leadership Development Programme‏

In an effort to support the integration process in Southeast Europe, the seventh “Southeast Europe and the EU – Leadership Development Programme” supports 30 young people from the countries of Southeast Europe as well as broader Europe. The programme was initiated in 2006 by the College of Europe, Bruges, and the TRANSFUSE Association, Berlin. The European Fund for the Balkans has been generously financing the programme since 2008 and is now, since 2009, organising it jointly with the College of Europe and the TRANSFUSE Association.

The Programme will consist of the following activities:

Two-week Summer Academy in Austria and Slovakia

September 2012

The curriculum includes topics related to the European Union and the development of its relations with Southeast Europe as well as wider issues of international and economic relations. Practical training components focussing on project management, leadership, communication and media skills provide participants with essential leadership qualities.

Group Projects in Southeast Europe

Between October 2012 and March 2013

Back in their home countries, participants keep in contact and work together in small multicultural groups to develop and implement a group project in Southeast Europe.

Five-day Spring Seminar in Belgium

April 2013

The Final Seminar offers visits and briefings in the EU institutions and NATO in Brussels and in the Campus of the College of Europe in Bruges.

The Programme is led by an Academic Dean, who guides the participants through the different components of the Programme. The working language of the Programme is English. Participants are expected to be available during the overall period of the Programme (July 2012 – April 2013) and to attend each planned activity.

Only 30 selected applicants will be invited to participate. Their participation in the Programme is financed by the European Fund for the Balkans, an initiative by the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the King Baudouin Foundation, the Compagnia di San Paolo and the ERSTE Foundation, hosted by the Network of European Foundations.
