In this framework UCM has prepared the European Programmes’ Guide which refers to selected programmes that might be of interest of Municipalities, according to their competencies. It provides information concerning the subject/ goal that each of the Programme strives to promote as well as relevant websites or sources of information which one could use in case of a particular interest.
As a member of the Assembly of European Regions (AER), UCM has activated Eurodyssey Programme (www.eurodyssee.eu) for Cyprus. Eurodyssey Programme gives the opportunity to youngsters from Cyprus, between 18-32 years old to spend 4 – 7 months for a traineeship in a European country, member of AER. At the same time, public or private organizations from Cyprus are funded to host a young trainee at their organization, from a European country for occupational/vocational training, for the period of 4 – 7 months. For more information concerning the Eurodyssey Programme you can visit the website www.eurodyssee.eu.
The UCM participates itself in projects and activities implemented through EU Programmes with the purpose to develop capacities or to provide specialized knowledge to Municipalities in different sectors of their competencies.
