October 10-12 marked the successful implementation of the sixth workshop of IEPs “Training The Trainers on EU Project Cycle Management” in Kyiv. The training series is aimed at enabling the Ukrainian civil society participants to apply for EU funding and manage EU funded projects according to the EU Project Cycle requirements but also to pass on their knowledge to their colleagues through self-conducted trainings. It is furthermore part of IEPs ongoing work (Civic School for Sound EU Practice – CiSEP) to strengthen the capacity of Ukraine’s civil society in the framework of the EU-Ukraine association process.
From 1-4 February 2016, the last of three challenging workshops on the role of Civil Society Organisations(CSO) in the EU-Ukraine association process was concluded in Lviv. The workshop tackled the topics “Communication”, “Project Cycle Management” and “Fundraising”.
From 25-28 January 25 members of CSOs from Central and Southern Ukraine successfully concluded the last workshop of the first Civic School for Sound EU (CiSEP) training cycle in Odessa, Ukraine.
The first and second workshop in November and December were aimed at conveying knowledge on the EU-Association Agreement and its Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (AA/DCFTA) as well as teaching skills to effectively monitor and accompany the association process to the attending civil society representatives. The third workshop was a continuation of this knowledge and skills approach, but had a stronger focus on the skills-part.
First round of CiSEP workshops successfully concluded in Chernihiv
