From 5 – 7 November 2008 the first TEPSA Training workshop on “Communication with policy-makers” took place in Brussels.
With the aim of bringing together young researchers and practitioners the 12 participants from different European rese
arch institutes or think tanks were introduced to the demands and needs of the European Institutions with regard to expertise and trained on how to best access relevant information and how to draft policy briefs for policy-makers.
TEPSA Training is a special programme for a small group of early stage researchers, primarily from the member institutes of the TEPSA network. Its objective is to prepare and train young professionals in think-tanks and academic institutions to improve their skills for work in the transnational environment. The focus lies especially on developing capacities for analysing, assessing, advising and administering EU related issues and projects.
