at the Centre for Fine Arts “BOZAR”,
Rue Baron Horta 11, 1000 Brussels, (Metro: Gare Centrale),
On 4 and 5 April 2019, the Trans European Policy Studies Association (TEPSA) will organise a two-day photo exhibition at the Centre for Fine Arts “BOZAR” (Room: Rotunda Bertouille) in Brussels. The exhibition “Daily lives in Central Asia” will show the beauty, culture and traditions of Central Asian countries, portraying the daily lives of their inhabitants and stimulating a reflection on the differences and similarities between Europe and Central Asia. The photos to be displayed have been selected on the basis of a transnational photo contest gathering more than 300 pictures. Six winners of the photo contest from Germany, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan have been invited to Brussels to attend the opening of the photo exhibition.
If you would like to participate in the opening, please register here by 26 March at the latest.
The photo exhibition will take place in the framework of the
SEnECA project. “SEnECA – Strengthening and Energizing EU-Central Asia
relations” seeks to improve research cooperation and to strengthen capacities in
research and policy advice in the European Union (EU) and Central Asia. It
comprises an international consortium with twelve partner organizations from the
EU and all five Central Asian countries. The project is led by Prof. Dr Michael
Kaeding, Professor for European politics at the University of Duisburg-Essen
(UDE), and Dr Katrin Böttger, Director of the Institut für Europäische Politik
(IEP). The project is funded with around 1.5 million Euros under the EU’s
Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme for a period of two years.

U4U organizes conferences and proximity meetings with a clear and transparent objective of informing the staff from all EU Institutions about their statutory rights, the different scenarios available for implementing them and of the economic consequences of many individual choices.
We have brought to Luxembourg, to Strasbourg, to Grange, to EUIPO in Alicante, to F4E in Barcelona and to Brussels (EEAS, Beaulieu site, Genève site, AGRI, RTD, OLAF, EAC,…) a series of conferences and events where the staff has been duly informed on the general legal framework applicable to our statutory rights. Moreover, we shared practical procedures, best practices and individual advices steaming from our experience in advocating for staff before the PMO, the HR and other instances in the Commission, European Parliament, Council and the EU bodies and Agencies.
We have already covered important subjects for many colleagues such as the evaluation and appraisal procedures, the retirement pension, the unemployment benefits, Brexit, disciplinary procedures, internal competitions, medical care and JSIS, the rights of contractual agents....
More than 1000 colleagues have already attended these information sessions since January 2019 and had the opportunity to raise their questions on the spot or bilaterally after the general session.
Our way of working is different : We do not read the staff regulation to the attendance, we do not bump 100 slides presentations and we do not promise anything. We just share the experience of hundreds of procedures handled, including (pre)litigation and try to find concrete solutions.
Therefore, don’t hesitate to contact us if you think that such events should be organized in your services and which thematic could be interesting.
