About Us

Goals and content

On behalf of German and European partners, IEP conducts compre­hensive trainings within the framework of the EU enlargement process and the European Neigh­borhood Policy (ENP).
All programs combine inter­active learning methods with a specific knowledge and experience exchange. Applic­a­bility and transfer of know-how are the main focus of our training workshops in order to contribute to successful conver­gence between the target countries and the EU.

Our partic­i­pants about us:

“Being involved in the CiSEP network made it possible to meet like-minded people, gain experience, develop and learn. Enhance access to infor­mation, exchange of experience and dissem­i­nation of knowledge. Commu­ni­cation with experts and coaches is also important — it shows the horizons that you should strive for. But the main thing for me is the energy and inspi­ration from each meeting, the realization that we are many and together we are strength.” — Svitlana Rozhok, Center of Community Devel­opment “Perspective” (Tschernihiw)

“I have learned a lot from the CiSEP seminars. And I will say honestly — all this is not for the sake of obtaining a certificate or a grant. You showed the mecha­nisms and how to properly build a training from scratch, how to make it inter­esting and colourful. Now I under­stand how all this was missing for me for three years, when I held various law-enlight­ening events in the villages and in my region. Thank you for sharing secrets and life hacks.” — Tetiana Shubenko, Rechts­ber­a­terin (Winnyzja)

“Many great thanks to the CiSEP team from the Berlin Institute of European Policy for their methodical, infor­ma­tional and financial support in conducting of the training “Reforming of the Food Safety System in Ukraine”. All of you: Constanze Aka, Martin Stein, Marina Lechleider, Anita Rohner and all your team members without any exemp­tions are great people, profes­sional experts and experi­enced trainers. After gradu­ating 3 levels (A, B, C) of your trainings I feel very confident in complex Ukraine- EU Associ­ation Agreement and in simple under­standable manner shared my knowledge with training partic­i­pants. I wish all of you success and many new achieve­ments in your honorable job! I really appre­ciate what you have done for Ukraine and hope you will continue supporting our country’s European path.”  — Sergiy Shcherbyna, NGO Analytical Center of the Agrarian Union of Ukraine (Oblast Kiew)
