The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova invites journalists to apply for a study programme in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia. It will take place from 9-12 August 2021.
During the visit, the participants will get acquainted with the socio-economic evolution of Bulgaria as an EU member state, the relationship and cooperation between Bulgaria and the Republic of Moldova, the media functioning, and civil society in Bulgaria. The agenda of the study visit will include meetings with representatives of several relevant institutions in Sofia.
This call for applications is addressed mainly to independent regional media representatives with at least one year of experience in the field and interest in reflecting on EU-Moldova topics.
