The first implementation of the programme was successfully completed in December 2014, and a second round was implemented in the spring of 2015, followed by a third in autumn 2015.

This programme is funded by the government of Latvia together with the governments of Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States of America. It is offered with a special focus on the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) countries, Central Asia and the Western Balkans.

Cost coverage for the participants will include travel to Riga and accommodation during the 12 week period of the programme, as well as a modest per diem for living expenses in Riga.
