Participating to Meetings

Meetings allow for open dialogue and exchange of views between civil society organisations and the Commission services. In Civil Society Dialogue meetings, we discuss the latest trade policy initiatives.

On the Civil Society meetings webpage, you can learn more about the different meetings organised, consult the list of future meetings and register to attend.

Travel expenses

The European Commission currently makes available a limited budget to cover for travel expenses so as to allow EU civil society organisations to participate to our "on site" Civil Society Dialogue meetings. If you are based outside Brussels, you can ask to have your travel costs covered from the city your organisation is based in and back.
