The EU Delegation in Moldova launched the annual European Union Visitors Programme, according to a press release from the EU Delegation.
The EUVP is a study programme for young leaders from countries outside the European Union. EUVP participants are invited to visit the EU in order to gain a first-hand appreciation of its goals and policies, and to discuss matters of mutual interest with Members of the European Parliament and officials of the EU Institutions, as well as with representatives of European associations, NGOs, etc.
Selection of EUVP participants is made by a Committee (under the present co-chairmanship of the Vice-President of the European Parliament, and a Member of the European Commission), from a short-list drawn up by the External Delegations of the European Commission in the third countries concerned.
Deadline for applications is 22 September 2013. The results of the selections will be announced by the end of 2013. Travel will take place in 2014.
