Know-How Transfer
What is the JCI European Know-How Transfer (EUKHT) and who can participate?

The JCI European Know-How Transfer (EUKHT) is a job shadowing exchange program between young leaders and European decision-makers.

The program allows participants to experience work at the European Parliament and to take part in the European decision-making process.

At the same time, as an exchange of knowledge and experience the participating Members of the European Parliament (MEP) learn from socially responsible young leaders and entrepreneurs about challenges their constituencies are facing, common solutions and community needs. Thus, the project strengthens personal contacts and increases understanding between European politicians and young leaders.

The programme is open to both JCI and non JCI Members between the age of 18 and 40 years.

Non JCI Members will be put in contact with the National Organisation they correspond to.

Participants are welcome from any country in the world, not only those coming from EU member states. We are subject to European Parliament strict rules and regulations for admissions of participants to this programme and all EU institutions premisses. Their decision is final and will not be appealed. 

 

What can I learn and experience by participating?
  • understand how the MEPs work and how the European Institutions work
  • learn how you can contribute to shape European politics and the future of Europe
  • participate in online training sessions, virtual group meetings and in person plenary sessions with the Representatives of the European Institutions on current important topics
