EU:CD Fellowship for Junior & Mid-Level Experts 2022

Strengthening the global cyber diplomacy engagement and debate is one of the key factors contributing towards the global implementation of the UN framework for responsible state behaviour. But with a rapidly expanding range of international issues on the cyber diplomacy agenda, it is important to ensure that all stakeholders have access to the relevant knowledge and background of these processes as well as skills to meaningfully engage in those conversations. To support that goal, the EU Cyber Diplomacy Initiative – EU Cyber Direct launches the EU:CD Fellowship for Junior and Mid-Level Experts from partner countries that will run from September 2022 to October 2024.

The EU:CD Fellowship Programme will be comprised of four main pillars:

  • Knowledge building: Fellows will be invited to participate in targeted online sessions related to the main themes of the Programme. In particular, Fellows will have a unique opportunity to interact with senior officials from the EU and member states.
  • Skills enhancement: Fellows will have the opportunity to strengthen their competencies in policy analysis, negotiation, public speaking and writing through a series of workshops and lectures delivered by leading experts and academics in the field.
  • Representation broadening: Selected Fellows will obtain support to prepare and participate in a session of the OEWG (New York), a session of the AHC on cybercrime (Vienna) as well as another major international cyber-related event in Europe. Please note that in the case of government officials, participation in some of these meetings might be subject to accreditation from a respective national government and require approval from the employer.
  • Mentorship: Each Fellow will have an opportunity to benefit from mentorship by a senior government official or expert collaborating with the EU Cyber Diplomacy Initiative.
