Blue skills - Knowledge of the seas network
Wednesday, 16 November, 2016 to Thursday, 17 November, 2016
Rostock, Germany
Outlines
This event will look at the theme of Blue skills from four different perspectives. On the one hand, the first two sessions offer the opportunity to learn more about the topic of Blue skills from both the European and macro-regional (strategy) perspective as well as the thematic stakeholders’ and experts’ perspective. On the other hand, the event offers the opportunity for (Interreg) programmes to promote how they support Blue skills as programme and through their projects (programme and project perspectives).    
The target group of this event are on the one hand Interreg Programmes with a maritime character or component, and here especially Joint Secretariat staff members dealing with maritime/marine project generation, assessment, monitoring and support. At the same time, the meeting will provide a broader approach by also inviting thematic experts and stakeholders as well as project representatives to ensure a holistic view to the topic of Blue skills.
Objectives
Originally being a network of only maritime Interreg CBC programmes, the network has been opened up in 2015 for involvement from beyond maritime Interreg CBC programmes depending on the concrete theme on the agenda. The activities of this ‘Knowledge of the Seas’ network consist of two main components: to jointly RECEIVE knowledge of the seas: sharing knowledge and exchange of experiences, organise seminars, workshops, thematic trainings, and to jointly PRODUCE AND PROMOTE knowledge of the seas: organise seminars, workshop etc., participate in public events as e.g. the joint stand at the European Maritime Day 2016 in Turku, Finland.
 
Registrations are open until the 4th November 2016.

Call for Managing Authorities to attend a 4 day training camp which is going to be held in Malta between the 24th-27th January 2017 in collaboration with the Interact III Programme

 
 


In collaboration with the Interact III Programme, a 4-day training camp will be held here in Malta between the 24th and 27th January 2017 for staff of the Territorial Cooperation Unit from the Funds and Programmes Division. These sessions
will be prepared and delivered by the Interact team.
 
The training will address all phases of the project management cycle, providing participants with an understanding of the requirements associated with each phase of the cycle in the context of the 2014-2020 Interreg programmes. Participants will also discuss the latest trends and requirements related to management of Interreg programmes, with a focus on the contribution of a project to the programme's desired results.
In addition, participants will work on developing their facilitation skills, focusing on practical tips on how to improve/strengthen their work with project applicants and beneficiaries, thus on how to make their own work more efficient.
This training camp will also be an opportunity to meet staff, at programme level, from all Interreg programmes, who are involved in project generation, development and implementation, since representatives from the various Managing Authorities may register to attend the camp here in Malta.
