27 – 28 November 2015, Chișinău. European specialisation for journalists from the Republic of Moldova – CORESPONDENT EUROPA
The regional office of Romanian Center for European Policies in the Republic of Moldova (CRPE – R. Moldova) in partnership with EURACTIV Romania organised, between 27 and 28 November 2015 in Chisinau, a specialised seminar on European affairs for 15 journalists from the Republic of Moldova. The journalists were selected during the contest CORESPONDENT EUROPA (Europe Correspondent), organised in October.
The training sessions aimed to specialise the journalists from the Republic of Moldova on European themes and to develop their ability to access funds. Experts of the Romanian think-thank CRPE and of EURACTIV Romania facilitated the expertise transfer. Cristian Ghinea (CRPE expert) focused on explaining how the European Union is organised and how the decisions are taken at European level, while Bianca Toma (CRPE expert) presented the tools and the media resources that would help the journalists to inform about EU. Also, the EURACTIV experts – Ramona Diaconu and Andrei Schwartz – showed the selected journalists how to elaborate a grant proposal, how to draft the budget of a project and which are the steps that must be taken in order to implement a project. EURACTIV Romania trainers presented financing opportunities for journalists and offered free consultance for the journalists who wanted to access funds.
The training sessions were organised within the project CORESPONDENT EUROPA implemented by CRPE – R. Moldova in partnership with EURACTIV Romania and was supported through a programme of the Embassy of Netherlands.
