The applicant´s future professional focus should be in one of the following areas: circular economy and recycling, architecture and energy-efficient construction, business administration, digitalization and IT, energy supply and renewable energies, environmental management and green economy, mechanical engineering, urban planning, water and wastewater treatment and economics.

The application phase started from 01st August and will run until 12th September 2021. The pre-selected applicants will be interviewed by GIZ representatives in Skopje end of September/ beginning of October 2021. The most convincing applicants will be selected for a shortlist for the qualification programme; however, they still have to pass the matchmaking with the demand of German companies/ institutions and German language course at Goethe Institute in Skopje. The training programme will be taking place in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) from April until July (October) 2022. More details for the programme could be found in the enclosed documents.
