Management of the project
This project is managed by the College of Europe Development Office. The College of Europe was founded in 1949 as the world’s first university institute of postgraduate studies and training in European affairs, and is a centre of academic excellence preparing individuals to work and live in a European and international environment. The College of Europe has two campuses, one in Bruges, Belgium and, since 1994, another in Natolin, Poland. Offering six academic programmes to more than 400 students every year, the College of Europe provides a unique and challenging multicultural and pluri-linguistic learning environment comprising an international body of students, academics and practitioners.
Since 2007 the College of Europe is welcoming each year students coming from the ENP countries. The College of Europe teaches its students and training participants about the European Neighbourhood Policy, carries out research and holds conferences on ENP-related issues and organises study visits in ENP countries.

 

The Development Office within the College of Europe was established in Bruges in 1996 as a service to develop and manage professional services, projects and partnerships. It has been part of numerous capacity building projects for international donors, including the European institutions. Services offered throughout the projects cover the development of training programmes, including professional seminars and tailor-made training courses, specifically targeted at public officials, private sector professionals, decision-makers and staff of civil society organisations. The Development Office has been actively contributing to the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI). In 2011 for instance, the Development Office organised a training for Armenian officials on the EU-Armenia partnership. It has also welcomed  several delegations of young Algerian diplomats for a 1-week training in 2012 and 2014.
