New Calls for Experts for the Western Balkans 2 Project are now open!


Within the framework of the Western Balkans II Project (Pilot Action on Judicial Training IPA/2021/425-032), EJTN is launching three new calls for experts in judicial training on EU law.

The Calls are addressed to experts in judicial training who will support the development of the following:

  • Training of Experts on EU Commercial Law at the Judicial Academy of Serbia (JA);
  • Training of Trainers at the Centre for Training in Judiciary and State Prosecution of Montenegro (CTJSP); and
  • Training on EU Consumer Protection Law at the CTJSP.

The selected experts will lead the process of designing and implementing the seminars from March to July 2024.
The seminars are part of a larger EJTN-supported judicial training programme on the EU acquis, based on training needs assessments conducted by the JA and CTJSP with EJTN support in 2022-2023. You can read more about the training needs assessment process and associated conclusions here: EJTN releases Training Needs Assessment reports, providing new insights for better EU law training in the Western Balkans.

The programme(s) aims to support the judicial training institutions in Serbia and Montenegro to train and accredit a core group of trainers on EU law and contribute to the establishment and continued advancement of national networks of experts for adherence to European standards in both countries.

A consistent approach will be adopted within the programme(s) framework and should be upheld by the Experts selected for the Project.

More information about the training programme(s), the expert’s tasks and responsibilities, as well as on the application process can be found here:
