European funding for judicial training

Deadline for this call for proposals: 02/10/2013 

This call for proposals for action grants aims to select projects dealing with judicial training.

All proposals should aim to generate an added value at EU level as opposed to national or regional level

European judicial training targets primarily judges and prosecutors, because a welltrained and competent judiciary is a key prerequisite for the application of EU law, especially when they cannot always decide in what types of cases to be involved. European judicial training may also target, as a second step, training of judicial court staff, lawyers, bailiffs, mediators and notaries from the EU Member States and/or acceding or candidate countries.

 European judicial training activities can include the assessment of training needs, the development of training content, the organisation of training events, including quality evaluation, impact evaluation and dissemination of results; as well as dissemination of innovative results and adaptation of innovative practice for use in new settings; the organisation of train the trainers activities, the organisation of multilateral exchange programme for judges and prosecutors; support to judicial networks that are associated with or involved in coordinating assessment of training needs in EU law.

The training activities can take place in the context of continuous or initial training (induction-period) of the participants. All activities must involve participants (end-users, which should be members of the target group described above) from several Member States.

The total indicative budget available is EUR 8 200 000. Grants: up to 80% of the eligible costs
