Fourth Workshop with Ukrainian Civil Servants Implemented
Anne Bercio, project leader of “Capacity Building for EU Association in Ukraine“ at IEP, successfully implemented the fourth of six workshops with Ukrainian civil servants. All workshops aim at preparing the participants, working in leading positions in federal ministries or offices, to implement the EU-AA/DCFTA effectively.
The fourth workshop took place on 23–25 October in Kyiv. It was divided into two parts: The first part was dedicated to EU coordination. Through presentations and simulations, the participants gained knowledge about conducting committee meetings and how to prepare for them. In this task, they were supported by Ms. Danica Nasova-Ivanova, coordinator of the working groups for EU approximation in the Secretariat for European Affairs of the Republic of Macedonia. Working in this position, Ms. Nasova-Ivanova gained much experience on EU coordination and passed it on to the participants. The second part of the workshop was focused on improving the communication skills of the participants. Among other things, they learned how to improve their self-management and how to hold presentations on dry topics interestingly. This part of the workshop was mainly carried out by Ms. Karmen Semrl, a coach and professional skills trainer from Slovenia.
The workshops are kindly supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The next workshop will be on 7–8 November on EU Project Cycle Management.
