The National Academy of Public Administration and the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA Luxembourg) organized a webinar in English on "EU Administrative Law" on 21 and 22 October. Civil servants who signed up to the LMS platform of the Academy had the opportunity to learn about the best European practices in this field from Juan Diego Ramirez-Cardenas Diaz and Tomas Kramer, EIPA Luxembourg lecturers and experts in the European Union law. The officials who participated in the webinar expressed great interest and actively took part in the discussion. The National Academy of Public Administration will continue to organize similar webinars with special topics in the coming period.
As a reminder, the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) was founded in 1981 in Maastricht. Through training officials at the national and regional levels of public administrations of EU countries, EIPA provides practical knowledge of EU policies with an emphasis on improving skills and abilities for the sake of effective policy management. EIPA cooperates with the European Commission and other EU institutions and agencies, as well as the EU Member States. Due to that cooperation and expert lecturers' experience, EIPA trainings provide a comparative and analytical perspective of EU policies at the national and institutional level, making them the most valued trainings in EU policies. In 1992, EIPA established its second centre, the European Center for Judges and Lawyers, in Luxembourg, the seat of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Training in the field of EU law is most frequently held in the EIPA Luxembourg branch. Following one of the most important projects within the bilateral cooperation between the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Republic of Serbia, cooperation in the field of public administration reform in the context of European integration, the National Academy of Public Administration of the Republic of Serbia signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with EIPA Luxembourg in January 2020. This memorandum envisages trainings by lecturers from EIPA Luxembourg at the National Academy.
