|30 January||Training "Capacity building for EUSBSR stakeholders", 6-7 December 2017, Riga, Latvia|
Organised by the NDPHS Secretariat (the Coordinator of the Policy Area “Health” within the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR)), together with the coordinators of the EUSBSR Horizontal Action “Capacity”, the training gathered 20 experts and trainees from Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, Finland, Poland and Russian Federation. Its main purpose was to strengthen project promoters’ capacity to design and structure project ideas and concepts into viable project proposals within the EUSBSR framework, which could ultimately turn into regional flagship projects.
The focus of the first day was on policy impact, flagship processes and alignment of funding with the priorities of the EUSBSR. The second day ran by the NDPHS Secretariat, was shaped as a capacity building on project development and implementation for stakeholders active in the EUSBSR Policy Area “Health”. In this way the strategic discussions held on the first day were then translated into a practical and design-oriented process where project ideas were taken into bits and pieces and elaborated more in-depth.
During both days the participants benefited from several interactive participative exercises – split into teams they discussed concrete ideas and actions as well as exercised project management tools such as a Problem Tree, an Objective Tree and a Logical Framework Approach.
