ARMENIA - List of EEAS calls for tenders for the current year
The Centre for Strategic Initiatives (CSI), with the technical and financial support from the EU Delegation to Armenia, is launching a Programme of Young Experts Scheme - “YES Armenia”. Through this Programme about 20 young Armenians and Armenian citizens will gain the opportunity to work in and for ministries, government agencies, and other government institutions for 12 months (starting in September 2017).
Through this Programme we offer young people an opportunity and a challenge to work with Government priority projects, which are central to Government reforms. In addition, the YES Armenia Programme is a perfect opportunity to start building trust between youth and public sector. It will bring in new dynamics and energy into civil service and contribute to its modernisation.
A year into the implementation of the European Union's shared vision and action plan for foreign and security policy, "we see substantial changes in the way we work together" and concrete results which make Europe stronger and safer, High Representative Federica Mogherini said today presenting the first annual report on the EU Global Strategy at the Foreign Affairs Council.
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre, together with INGSA and the Slovak Academy of Sciences, is organising a third Evidence and Policy Summer School. This professional development training offers policymakers and scientists the opportunity to meet each other and together develop skills in using evidence for creating robust policy solutions. Using the lens of migration and demographic change as a common domain of policy interest, participants will be challenged to identify and address universal issues in data and evidence gathering and communication to policy makers and the general public. It is important to note that the workshop is not intended to present either the latest science or specific policy solutions in this domain, but to provide the tools and approaches to better inform the policy making process. Thus, the main focus rests on developing capacities in procuring, producing and using relevant evidence.
The Delegation of the European Union to Armenia and the Italian Embassy in Armenia jointly celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the Rome Treaties by opening a photo exhibition "Ever Closer Union".
