Capacity Building for EU Association in Ukraine with Government Office for European Integration (GOEI)
The GIZ training cycle is part of the „Reform Advisory Funds”, which support Ukraine in sustainable implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement e.g. in form of training, IT solutions and personal capacities.
The idea for conducting a comprehensive training in fundamental EU-related skills for high-level employees of the newly created Government Office for EU Integration appeared in a meeting between the IEP and GOEI staff in spring 2015.
The broad content of the training was a wish from the GOEI and it should prepare the participants for fundamental challenges of the early phase of the EU association process.
The group includes participants from GOEI and several other important actors of EU association process (e.g. competition authority, presidential administration), all of which took part in the training regularly and completed it successfully.
After the training cycle, participants attended a study trip to EU-coordinating institutions in Berlin, Zagreb and Belgrade.
