Team Europe

The main objective of Team Europe is to provide accurate and objective information on EU-related matters to various target groups. Team Europe members take part in seminars, conferences, training schemes, television programs, etc., upon request to inform various sectors of the public. Institutions in Turkey can apply to have experts participate in their activities. In responding to these requests, the EU communication support project team searches the database for viable candidates, contacts the expert(s), and offers choices (if available) to the institution filing the request. Please check below for a list of Team Europe Experts.
