Fondation EURACTIV: Training Young European Media Professionals
At EURACTIV there has always been a focus on learning and over the period since 2000 it is estimated that over a thousand European professionals have been trained in one discipline or another.
Partly this has been deliberate and partly a result of changes in information and communications technology. The deliberative aspect stemmed from a belief that few of the initial and even subsequent recruits would already possess the skills needed to thrive in a fast-changing pan-European policy world. It quickly became a commitment that everyone who joined the team should leave better trained than when they arrived.
As the EURACTIV network of offices grew and spread across the continent it became obvious that our franchisees could also benefit from some of the training provided to the core team. Partner meetings of at least 12 countries now held a couple of times a year regularly include updates and training sessions for editorial and other professional skills. Over 150 partners have been trained.
