In the context of the Project, ‘Building bridges between NGOs, business associations and media from Moldova, Ukraine and Russia for conflict prevention in Transnistria’, EPD organised a 3-day training programme in Brussels from 1- 4 July with representatives from 27 NGOs. This project aims to bring together stakeholders from Moldova (including the Transnistrian region), Ukraine and Russia and uses a grassroots approach to enhance cooperation between them. The 27 NGOs from Moldova, Ukraine and Russia also receive funding through a sub-granting mechanism that is part of the project.

The first day of the training was devoted to the EU, its institutions, external policy and funding instruments for civil society organisations. The session was followed by a discussion with a representative from the EEAS Eastern Partnership Unit where participants discussed the current political situation in the region.

The second session consisted of training on project design and management as well as an interactive exercise on EU Programming. The participants then had the opportunity to direct their questions about EU project proposals to two representatives from the European Commission (DEVCO).

On the last day of the training, all 27 participants visited the European Endowment for Democracy (EED). EED introduced their operating model and funding mechanism and participants were given the opportunity to ask questions about future funding opportunities.
