Tailor - Made Services
ECAS provides tailor-made services to civil society organisations based on individual requests. These services include a large variety of activities ranging from research and analysis on EU issues to organizing study tours, internships, and conferences to technical assistance and capacity building (see some examples below).
NEW! On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, ECAS decided to expand the services it offers to the non-profit sector with customised training modules on several topics, including effective Communication and Advocacy, EU Fundraising and Project Management. These training modules are organised for groups of maximum 8 people at our own premises on a biannual basis (i.e. Autumn session and Spring session).
Our next training session is scheduled to take place on 6-8 December 2016. This time we propose the following training modules, which combine an offline and online methodology:
- Got the Money, Now What? – Learn How to Manage a European Project Effectively (6 December)
- Tips and Tricks for Effectively Advocating and Shaping the Agenda at EU Level (7 December)
- The Ins and Outs of EU Funding: Understanding the Process and Increasing your Success Chances (8 December)
Customised training sessions on EU fundraising, advocacy, communication and EU project management at our client’s premises
Advice on EU- and non-EU funding opportunities and support in partner-matching
