Development cooperation courses
The PuntoSud Academy aims at strengthening the capacity of Civil Society Organisations, International Organisations and the EU Member States Specialised agencies to manage development cooperation programmes.

We use our long-lasting expertise in developing and delivering training/eLearning modules and our in-depth knowledge of the EU external aid to provide high quality training programmes focused on the management of EU-funded development projects.
