ECESIS

Objectives

The project will create a network of educational certers for retraining the administrative staff of the co-operating region administrations in Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk, Sumy and L'viv), Russia (Moscow and Tambov), Armenia (Yerevan) and Moldova (Comrat). The centers will be open to staff of regional and local (city, district, ...) administrations.


The activities of the centers will mainly consist of training courses, but the centers will also offer library and consulting services to the regional and local administrative bodies. Courses and teaching material will be devoted to modern methods of management in public administration, but also include topics like democratic procedures, local party systems, by-laws of representative bodies, local self-administration, and citizen participation. Special emphasis will be given to administrative processes supported by information technology and to business process reengineering.


The centres will offer self-learning material and courses to administrators. All teaching material will be kept in a database which will be available over the Internet via the project website — even beyond the lifetime of the project. A pilot group of Russian, Armenian, Moldavian and Ukrainian administrators will be established to visit EU partners for retraining and becoming acquainted with administrative practices in Germany, Spain, Poland and Slovakia. Dissemination and sustainability will be supported by an alumni association which will both spread the experience gained in the project and continue the work of the centres beyond the lifetime of the project.
