A seminar on the development of EU projects at the Government of AP Vojvodina

At the invitation of the Provincial Secretariat for Education, Administration and National Communities, a three-day seminar has been held for its employees, as well for the representatives of the Department for Joint Affairs of Provincial Authorities.

During the training, the Fund’s representatives informed the participants about the IPA mechanism and on-going cross-border cooperation and Community programmes available to institutions in Vojvodina until the end of 2013. The course involved a theoretic overview and practical exercises, so that the attendees could develop project proposals by means of the tools of the logical framework approach. Moreover, the topics covered included the basic principles of EU project budgeting, additional documents necessary with the application form, as well as the evaluation and selection of successful projects. The main goal of the course was to equip participants with knowledge and skills necessary for project development on their own and taking an active role in using the options the EU funds offer.
