TEMPUS project

"DEPOCEI - Development of Policy-Oriented Training Programmes in the Context of European Integration”

 

NISPAcee is participating in the new TEMPUS project "DEPOCEI - Development of Policy-Oriented Training Programmes in the Context of European Integration” led by the Faculty of Political Sciences – University of Belgrade, Serbia.


The project aims at building capacities of the targeted Western Balkans universities to research EU public policies and deliver teaching and training courses for public administration, the business community and civil society organisations. By promoting the targeted universities intoleading training and consultancy centres for EU public policies, the project will satisfy the ever-growing need amongst the identified target groups for a better understanding of EU public policies and provision of related information (such as new legislation and available funding). The establishment of the centres for EU public policies and training of university teachers to deliver trainings related to their research fields could significantly contribute to the EU integration of their respective countries by assisting civil servants, entrepreneurs and NGO activists in acquiring and applying knowledge on EU public policies and processes.

 

The purpose of the project is to increase awareness, understanding and knowledge about EU public policies in the targeted countries (Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro), thus contributing to their EU integration process. This will be accomplished mainly through building capacities of selected universities in these countries to provide adequate teaching and training on EU public policies for civil servants, the business community and NGO activists. The project should help the promotion of the identified universities into leading training and consultancy centres for EU public policies and processes. Establishment of the centres for EU public policies in the universities, coaching university lecturers to transfer knowledge and skills to non-academics, development of trainings on a number of relevant policy areas and accumulation of teaching and researching resources could be a sustainable solution for the growing need of the public and private sectors in target countries to understand the functioning of EU institutions and the possible impact of their policies. By the end of the project, the established centres should also serve as dissemination and consultancy agencies, specialised in EU public policies. Furthermore, the twin centres would facilitate regional academic cooperation and networking, not only in the area of EU public policies, but also in other related research fields.
