As summer is a low season for the CEF, we were delighted to welcome a much younger audience than we usually have at our workshops. A group of forty students from thirteen European countries taking part in the Faculty of Administration Summer School visited the CEF on August 21, 2013.
Final-year students from public administration, public management, public policy and administrative informatics study programs were in Slovenia on a two-week intense Erasmus program that focuses on challenges in public administration in the European Union.
The students learned about the CEF's tasks and activities and our efforts in promoting regional cooperation among the countries of South East Europe through offering trainings, seminars and programs in public financial management, central banking, and people and process management. The students were interested in how the CEF interacts with public administration institutions in the region and in our approach to learning.
The Faculty of Administration at the University of Ljubljana is a member of the institutional capacity working group within the framework of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region. This working group, which the CEF coordinates, focuses on strengthening institutional capacity and regional cooperation.
