Building a strong partnership is one of the main concerns when preparing a project proposal. On 25 April we organise a webinar that gives an opportunity to go deeper into the key questions you should ask yourself when selecting your project partners.

Who should I involve?

Policymakers are essential because they are responsible for the design and implementation of policies. This is the reason why public authorities and managing authorities of the structural funds are the primary target group of the programme.

In addition, the policy making process involves a wide range of players from public, private or third sector. Those players will be associated in the project through the regional stakeholder groups.

Is the topic of my project of clear interest to all partners?

The overall project topic should be clearly reflected in the policy instruments addressed by each partner. The selected policy instruments should be relevant when dealing with the challenge faced by the partnership.

Are my partners fully aware of their own territorial context?

Having an in depth knowledge of the state of play of the issue tackled on the ground is fundamental in order to ensure a rich exchange of experience across the partnership.

The webinar will guide you through these questions and provide additional information on the main requirements of the programme. Even more, practical hints will be given on the way to fill in the relevant sections of the application form.

Staff of the joint secretariat will be available to answer your questions in the online chat and live.

Join us on Tuesday 25 April at 10 am CEST (Paris time). Please register here.
