European Projects Association introduced its Professional Improvement Program in 2009. The aim of the program is to offer a selected number of students and graduated employees the opportunity to improve their knowledge, integrating them within the International Staff at EPA Headquarters in Brussels, its Territorial Contact Points (TCPs) and partner organizations worldwide. The PIP Program is open not only to students, graduates and young employees but also to university and organization who would like to become our partner as a sending or hosting organization. For the organization member and TCPs, EPA provides the opportunity to host EPA Young Professionals that will give an added value by implementing their knowledge through the use of EPA methodology.

Professional Improvement Program is EPA's 3 to 12 months program that offers to young people from all over the world a chance to collaborate with professionals on the consulting and informing field and gather a practice in developing and implementation of EU projects.
