III Transnational Partner Forum

National Supporting Institution organized III Transnational Partner Forum on 15th and 16th of June 2011 in Poland (Warsaw). The representatives from eight countries took part in the Forum: Poland, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Czech Republic, Estonia, Spain and United Kingdom - together 84 participants. They represented 53 projects (26 projects from Poland, 16 from Sweden, 4 from Czech Republic, 2 projects from Finland, 2 from Germany and 1 project from Estonia, Spain and United Kingdom) at different stages of implementation  –  some of them were at stage  of the “project idea”, several already received financing but not started its project implementation and some were already implemented. The representatives of the AEIDL (the European Association for Information on Local Development) as well as  Learning Network on Transnational Cooperation in ESF took part in the Forum.

The main purpose of this Forum, was to help projects to find suitable partners. Therefore, apart from the short introductory phase with presentations on differences pertaining to the ESF implementation systems in each country as well as about the importance of taking into consideration the cultural differences while implementing such projects, the main focus was put on discussions around tables divided according to the following themes:                                       

  1. Social Inclusion;
  2. Knowledge Transfer.


The selection of themes were prepared in advance on the basis of the project’s fiches sent by the participants before the event to the National Supporting Institution. At each table facilitators from Poland, Sweden and Finland were leading the discussions in order to help the participants find the suitable partnerships. Those of the participants,  who could not find any partners during the first day at their table were re-examined and during the second day these projects were assigned to other tables with further possibility of partner match. At the end of the second day each table announced how many potential partners were found - it came up that almost all projects had succeeded.  Some of them have already signed the letter of intent for further cooperation. In order to facilitate further contacts and disseminate the idea of the working method  applied at the III Transnational Partner Forum, some materials have been placed on our web site and grouped in the following bookmarks:
