TEPSA/IHS awarded grant from the Central European Initiative (CEI) Cooperation Fund

TEPSA, together with its Austrian member, the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS), has been awarded the Central European Initiative (CEI) Cooperation Fund Grant for the organisation of TEPSA’s upcoming Pre-Presidency Conference (PPC) in Vienna, on 14-15 June 2016.

The CEI Cooperation Fund co-finances CEI Cooperation Activities aimed at strengthening cooperation among CEI Member States. It aims at capacity-building by knowledge transfer and sharing, in particular from EU CEI Member States to non-EU CEI Member States, and at exchanging experiences and good practice among all CEI Member States by favouring mobility and networking.

In line with these objectives, TEPSA Pre-Presidency Conference in Vienna will be an important occasion to:

  • enhance European strategic cooperation in the Western Balkans – Danube Region;
  • foster knowledge-sharing on the European Integration between European Research Area (ERA) and non-ERA academics;
  • enhance trans-European partnership and cooperation.

The PPC will also be an occasion to discuss some of the top challenges of the EU agenda and the future of Europe.
