Objectives and activities

Objective: The objective of the European Union Visitors Program (EUVP) is to enable young leaders, potential leaders and multipliers from non-EU Member States to obtain first-hand impressions of the Union's policies, Institutions and achievements and to increase the mutual understanding between professionals from non-EU countries and their EU counterparts.

Activities: An EUVP visit consists of an individual 5- to 8-day program of meetings with EU officials at the EU institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg and/or Luxembourg. All programs are coordinated and arranged by the EUVP Secretariat rather than by individual participants. Travel and per diem costs are covered by the EUVP.
