The project was financed by the Balkan Trust for Democracy and the project titled “Joint Initiative of the Council of Europe and EU for the Support of Parliamentary Institutions” (this project will be implemented by the Office of the Council of Europe in Belgrade during the year 2008).
March 2009 marked the completion of the project titled “Strengthening of Professional Capacities of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia in Charge of the European Integration Process” implemented during the two previous years in cooperation with the Slovak foundation Pontis and financed by the Bratislava-Belgrade Fund.

A project that served to achieve the same goal, financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was realized in cooperation with the Parliamentary Institute of the Czech Republic.
