Providing High-Quality Studies to Support Activities under the Eastern Partnership and Black Sea Synergy
The main objective of the project is to provide short-term expertise which can be mobilised at very short notice in order to carry out various studies (mapping studies, pre-feasibility studies, feasibility studies, evaluations, needs assessments, policy recommendation reports, etc.) on various topics:
- democracy, good governance and stability (e.g. human rights, public administration reform, fight against corruption, border management, migration and asylum, functioning of the judiciary);
- economic integration and convergence with EU policies (e.g. macroeconomic policy, fiscal policy, trade,employment, transport, health and sanitary issues);
- environment, climate change and energy;
- contacts between people (education, youth, culture, research, information society).
The list of topics should not be considered exhaustive. Individual assignments shall depend on the needs of the contract authority and the beneficiary countries, taking into account that studies should support the activities of the Eastern Partnership platforms and panels and the Black Sea Synergy partnerships. Each individual assignment will be based on specific terms of reference (ToRs) describing in detail its objectives and required outputs.
