Scotland Europa EU Insight Familiarisation Programme

Scotland Europa’s next annual EU Insight Familiarisation Programme will take place in Brussels on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 (morning only) June 2018. The 1.5 day programme is open to members and non-members seeking to develop their capacity to build productive relationships and engage effectively at EU level in our changing context. Scottish Financial Enterprise member organisations can take advantage of the member rate.

In addition to presentations from Scotland Europa on Brexit and on practical examples of relationship-building and influencing, participants will hear first-hand insights from EU partners and networks, and from representatives of third countries on how they engage in Brussels. There will also be an opportunity to meet with Scotland’s MEPs and other representatives from the EU institutions. Please get in touch with Scotland Europa if there are any areas you are particularly interested in learning about during the programme.

Scotland Europa colleagues are also available to facilitate individual meetings between members and other organisations before or after the official programme, to help members make the most of their time in Brussels.

As in previous years, Scotland Europa will charge an overall fee for the package, to cover overnight accommodation and catering costs. This year, they have negotiated a new rate for the accommodation costs, making it cheaper than previous programmes.
