The JCI European Know-How Transfer (EUKHT) is an exchange program between young leaders and European decision-makers. The program allows participants to experience the parliamentary work and to take part in the European decision-making process.
We are hosting this year’s EUKHT as a virtual event and have put a lot of thought into restructuring the event. As a result, we were able to create the most accessible European Know-How Transfer since its early beginnings in 2005!
What is the European Know-How Transfer (EUKHT)?
The JCI European Know-How Transfer (EUKHT) is an exchange program between young leaders and European decision-makers. The program allows participants to experience the parliamentary work and to take part in the European decision-making process. At the same time the participating Members of the European Parlament (MEP) learn from socially responsible young leaders and entrepreneurs about challenges their constituencies are facing. Thus, the project strengthens personal contacts and increases understanding between politicians and young leaders.
In 2019, the EUKHT was shortlisted for and awarded with a recognition by the “Altiero Spinelli Prize for Outreach” for enhancing citizens’ understanding of the EU.
What can I learn and experience by participating?
- learn how you can contribute to shape the European politics
- participate in virtual group meetings and plenary sessions with the Representatives of the European Institutions on the current hot topics
- let yourself introduced to key European Institutions (European Parliament, European Commission) and the way they operate at national and international level
- learn more about pursuing an EU career
- meet other international NGOs that have the same mission as JCI and build new connections
Is it going to be held online this year?
Even though EUKHT will take place online, it won’t be the classical Zoom event. We aim to create a real connection between members of the EU institutions and JCI members. We want to create the space for meaningful conversations, networking and discovering new opportunities. From Erasmus+ workshops, to how to find a job in European Institutions and panel discussions about the latest EU trends, this event will definitely improve your Know-How.
