EJTN’s call for proposals platform continues to be a unique virtual resource

Thursday, February 28, 2019

  • The restricted-access collaboration area is a virtual space for EJTN Members who wish to assess and potentially respond to European Commission calls for proposals.
  • The collaboration space, currently housing 6 open calls, is a continued sign of the strong mutual trust and creativity enjoyed between EJTN and its Members.

EJTN continues the use of its virtual collaboration space for EJTN Members who wish to assess and potentially respond to European Commission calls for proposals. The restricted-access space provides full information about open calls and a dedicated area for consortia of EJTN Members, responding to European Commission calls for proposals, to confidentially and securely discuss and plan their proposals.

Housed on EJTN’s existing project collaboration platform, the collaboration space is truly unique. All the needed details of the open calls for proposals can be viewed, associated documentation and application forms may be accessed, consortia plans and documentation can be shared and issues can be discussed – all in a secure virtual forum. Each EJTN Member organisation nominates representatives who will have access to the platform.

Currently, 6 calls for proposals are published on the platform, which address a range of key issues:

  • Training national judges in the context of enforcing European competition rules
  • Promoting judicial cooperation in civil and criminal matters
  • Supporting transnational projects to enhance the rights of persons suspected or accused of crime and the rights of victims of crime
  • Capacity building for litigating cases relating to democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights violations 
  • Supporting national or transnational e-Justice projects
  • Supporting transnational projects on judicial training covering civil law, criminal law or fundamental rights

In addition to this collaboration area, EJTN also arranges an annual workshop to help raise awareness and provides instructions on responding to these open calls for proposals.

As a sign of strong mutual trust and creativity, EJTN and its Members worked closely together several years ago to bring this unique collaboration space to fruition. EJTN is proud to help deliver such unique and value-adding resources to support Europe’s judicial training organisations.
