Capacity Building

Apart from various unrelated training possibilities CEEweb has three programs where members are regularly offered capacity building: its Annual Meetings and the CEEweb Academy. Every year the staff from the CEEweb Policy Office visit some of the CEEweb Members in order to share views about CEEweb main policy fields, proactive lobbying and to enhance cooperation. While these three activities are carried out yearly and are open for all CEEweb member organizations, the CEEweb Policy Office also strives to offer ad hoc trainings based on the emerging needs and available opportunities.
