Imagine being able to gain information instantly about whether a development project is reaching its intended recipients, or where the next cholera outbreak might be, or track the fluctuating wealth of every district in Cote d’Ivoire. These are some of the possibilities of Big Data analysis, where data of increasing volume, velocity and variety is mined for the unprecedented patterns and insights it may yield.
 When you think about development challenges, a lack of trained accountants might not immediately come to mind.

Organised byEuropean Security and Defence College (EEAS/ESDC)

The overall aim of the CSDP High Level Course (HLC) is to prepare selected
senior individuals from EU Member States and EU Institutions for leadership
positions in the application and development of the CSDP policy, crisis
management and capability development, which are able to cooperate
effectively with the various actors in this field. The course aims to broaden
course participants’ knowledge and understanding of the EU security and
defence architecture, the comprehensive nature of the CSDP as a key tool of
CFSP, current and anticipated policy, missions and operations, as well as to
increase their awareness of human rights and gender, freedom security and
justice and horizontal issues.

The training delivered both via the eLearning platform and during the
residential Modules promotes a common European security culture and aims to
foster the network of future leaders involved in the strategic aspects of the
CFSP/CSDP.

Most countries can finance some kind of social safety net through domestic resources, according to Belgian deputy prime minister and minister for development Alexander De Croo. But he says developing nations often lack the technical knowledge to build sustainable programmes for things like health care, social work and pensions. That’s where European policy experts come in through EU programme Socieux. To mark the launch of the next phase, Socieux+, we hear from participants on both sides of the exchange.
