Workshop participants sharing information

The British Council is delivering a new EU-funded project to help raise awareness of the EU accession process amongst citizens in Serbia, as they take the journey to accession.

Through individual and group study trips, representatives from the Serbian media will visit countries within the EU to learn more about accession first hand. Once there, they will have the chance to gain a greater understanding of the accession process and hear success stories from countries that have completed the accession journey. 

Back in Serbia, the media representatives will also be supported to produce ‘back from the EU’ broadcasts and thematic talk shows in order to share their experiences and impressions with the wider Serbian public.

Study trips to EU institutions in Brussels will also be provided for Serbian citizens.

The Project will run until 2017 and has a total value of over €400,000.
