23/04/2014 - European Union Visitors Program: deadline extended to 30 April

Applications now invited for the EUVP. The objective of the European Union Visitors Program (EUVP) is to enable young leaders, potential leaders and multipliers from non-EU Member States to obtain first-hand impressions of the Union's policies, Institutions and achievements and to increase the mutual understanding between professionals from non-EU countries and their EU counterparts. Australia and New Zealand have participated in the programme since 1983 sending over 136 visitors to Europe during that time.  A EUVP visit consists of an individual five-to-eight day program of meetings with officials at the EU institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg and/or Luxembourg. All programs are coordinated and arranged by the EUVP Secretariat and not by individual participants. Travel and per diem costs are covered by the EUVP.  Applications close 30 April 2014.
