Budget: €38.5 million

TAIEX aims to pave the way for bigger Twinning actions or even technical assistance interventions in the area of reforms and capacity - building.

Actions in brief

It is a demand-driven tool that aims to react to direct request sent by partner administrations. Assistance is given through expert missions, workshops or seminars and study visits.

The main target groups are civil servants working in public administrations at national level; the judiciary and law enforcement authorities; parliaments and civil servants working in parliaments and legislative councils; (professional and commercial associations as well as representatives of trade unions and employers’ associations can also take part in TAIEX seminars when the action is led by a public body).

EU Cooperation with Syria is currently suspended due to the political situation in the country; however, since in principle Syria is eligible for cooperation under the ENPI, activities may be taken up again once the situation improves.
