Take into account national peculiarities to shape a more effective offer Main issues: - National regulations  Some countries have their own regulations in addition to European regulations and International guidelines (e.g. OAIS) - Market peculiarity  Triggered by regulations  Identify and target relevant groups of potential CoE customers - Language  Clear demand for training activities in the national language
