Call for Application TEPSA Training 2011 – EXACT Network Seminar on Professional Skills, 6 – 19 October 2011, Brussels

TEPSA Training is a special training programme for a small group of researchers in an early stage of their career in research and policy advice. Building on the highly successful TEPSA training programme for younger researchers in 2008-2009, the TEPSA Training 2011 will be in the framework of the EXACT Marie Curie Initial Training Network project. This TEPSA Training offers the opportunity to eight early stage researchers to participate in the 14-day EXACT Network Seminar on Professional Skills.

The main objective of the TEPSA Training is the improvement of professional skills of young researchers. This aim will be achieved by broadening their network while participating in training on communication skills (professional media training); project management (also drafting proposals and financial management); analysis and advice (policy briefs and policy recommendations) and career development.

The EXACT Network Seminar on Professional Skills is open for eight external early stage researchers from TEPSA members and non-member institutes, active in European affairs or international relations. There is a minimum professional experience of 1 year required and applicants will need to have obtained a Master’s degree (or equivalent).
