EU National Institutes for Culture - EUNIC

EUNIC Job Shadowing Initiative 2019-2020

Have you ever wondered how other EUNIC members plan their programmes worldwide? How the Tunisia cluster is implementing the “Tfanen” project together with the EU Delegation and local partners? How EUNIC Global collaborates with colleagues working in EU institutions in Brussels? Then the EUNIC Job Shadowing Initiative is just for you. Applications for hosting offers based from Mexico to Japan are open until 3 June.

The EUNIC Job Shadowing Scheme enables colleagues working at EUNIC members’ headquarters or in clusters to exchange knowledge and learn from each other. It was initiated at the December 2018 General Assembly.


3 JUNE: Deadline for applications
JUNE-SEPTEMBER: Selection of participants and matching of the specific requests
SEPTEMBER 2019-JUNE 2020: Job Shadowing visits taking plac


The visits should provide a meaningful learning experience for colleagues and could last from a few days to one or two weeks.


Global has allocated budget under the Crossroads for Culture project for the EUNIC Job Shadowing Initiative to partially cover travel and accommodation costs for participants. The sending EUNIC member organisations are encouraged to finance or co-finance the costs of their staff members’ visit. The exact formalities will be agreed once the matching has been agreed.


Application is open to all EUNIC representatives from around the globe. Applications for all hosting offers are possible until 3 June 2019 via the online form; you can also request a specific placement if your interests are not covered by the offers.
