International Partnerships

Knowledge hub

Learning and knowledge sharing are at the core of our process. They help us promote policy coherence and development effectiveness. We have developed several tools to which all our staff and partners have access.


The aim of the strategy is to make the Directorate-General for International Partnerships a collaborative and learning organisation that develops, shares and applies the knowledge and expertise it needs to perform its mission.

Capacity4dev is the knowledge sharing platform created by the Commission's Directorate General for International Partnerships to connect development professionals around the world so they can collaborate and share knowledge and lessons learnt about their work.


EU International Partnerships Academy is our centralised e-learning portal, featuring free and interactive online courses, learning material, videos, live webinars etc. Open to the entire international development community, it promotes policy coherence by sharing our approaches with all of our partners.

Effective communication is an essential component of successful EU-financed cooperation projects and programmes. Partners must plan communication activities from the start of their actions.
The 'Communication and Visibility Requirements' for implementing partners came into force on 1st January 2018, and apply to all contracts signed from that date.

The guidelines are designed to support the Directorate-General for International Partnerships, EU Delegations and external service providers to produce powerful, contemporary and consistent digital content, which reflects the EU International Partnerships verbal and visual style.
