PROPOSALS SOUGHT TO TRAIN JOURNALISTS IN EUROPEAN NEIGHBOURHOOD

The European Commission is seeking an organisation to design, develop and implement a regional training and networking project for journalists and media professionals from 16 countries in the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument's (ENPI) southern and eastern regions: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Moldova, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, the Russian Federation, Syria, Tunisia and Ukraine.

The project aims to train at least 200 journalists, editors, producers and other media professionals to develop the professional skills required to report on EU affairs; to support them in using their newly acquired skills and knowledge by developing a complementary program for at least 50 of their editors, managers and owners; and to develop a network of trained journalists and other media specialists across the beneficiary countries. The maximum budget available is 4 million Euros (US$ 5.5 million).

Applications (in English) must be submitted by 8 August 2007. Four to eight short-listed candidates will be invited to submit detailed project proposals.
