We are looking for the 6 best applicants from the WB6 National Parliaments, who want to shape the regional and European collaboration by using their knowledge and enthusiasm in applying the best practices in the process of administrative reform.

The European Fund for the Balkans (EFB) announces the call for applications for the new initiative – EFB Fellowship at the Austrian Parliament. The fellowship is designed for the public servants working in the administrations of the National Parliaments in Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Serbia, who are proficient in German language (B1 Level). The Fellowship Programme at the Austrian Parliament is a practice-oriented educational programme for civil servants working in the National Parliaments of Western Balkan countries. The purpose of the programme is to give impetus to the EU integration-driven reforms of the Western Balkans’ parliament’s administrations, through building the capacities of individuals, who are acting as the agents of change. The programme targets ambitious public administration professionals with a strong commitment to contributing to the development of their societies who are lifelong learners, acquiring skills and broadening their horizons throughout their careers. It offers a unique opportunity to familiarize the regional administration with the operations and practices of the Austrian Parliament, as well as to observe and to learn from the administrative staff and professionals about the different aspects of their work. The programme description and the full guidelines for the applicants are available at this page.
