The call is open to citizens of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.

Paid traineeships receive a grant of €1,330 per month. The place of employment will be Lisbon, Portugal, where the EMCDDA has its seat. The EMCDDA covers travel expenses incurred at the beginning and end of the traineeship.
