Our next EUAcademy will take place in Brussels on 10-11 March 2020. The focus of this two-day interactive training will be on the Council of the European Union in the run up to the German presidency starting on July 1st 2020. We will take participants on a journey through the essentials of EU decision-making and influencing and then dive deeper into the role of the Council and its rotating presidency. The programme of the training will be available in January when we open registrations.
