The project aims at helping the EI shift the focus of its mission as necessitated by the post-accession reality, get itself widely recognized throughout the SCO sector and achieve further sustainable development through strengthening its institutional research and expert capacity. The organization will have to further elaborate its mission in order to evolve into a strategic policy and advocacy center that communicates EU policies, raises public awareness and initiates public debate on critical issues. All this can be achieved by working in partnership with other research institutes, international organizations, influential think tanks, the civil society and its organizations.
