One of the permanent activities of the European Institute of Romania (EIR) is represented by the conduct of short-term and long-term professional training activities and programmes in the field of European affairs. Our training programmes are addressed primarily  to civil servants and other employees of the central and local administration, especially those with responsibilities related to European affairs and implementing necessary to fulfilling its obligations as a Member State and representing its interests before Community institutions.

Since the beginning, EIR has been conducting short-term and long-term professional training activities and programmes in the field of European affairs, which have evolved over time. Thus, EIR was involved in various activities that started from the training of staff needed in the accession to the European Union period to the training of those who successfully represented us during the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The courses offered by the EIR are established as a result of a training needs analysis performed within the administration, which takes place periodically. The range of topics covered can thus change depending on the results.

Currently, the Institute offers both open courses, on predetermined topics, to which all persons falling into the target groups can enrol, as well as on-demand courses, adapted, developed and implemented at the request of our partners.

Most of our trainers are both academics as well as practitioners, having advanced knowledge in their fields of expertise. Experience has shown us that their ethics and professionalism demonstrated in presenting the topics and in approaching the students are much needed contributions to the quality of the courses.

An essential element of our activity is provided by the incorporation of the feedback coming from the participants in the constant improvement of our products and services.
