Transnationality and Interregionality or how to connect projects and other ESF actors all over Europe Mr Johannes Wikman
Is it possible for us to have a transnational partner outside of ESF funding? For a joint development of a product. Can all of the costs be paid by one partner (us) if the difference in financial ability is big? Can we collaborate with a project in any Member State? What kind of help can we expect when we encounter problems with transnationality? Do all countries work with the same ESF content in their programmes? How do find out what is planned in ESF in other MS? If I dont know or can find a transnational partner on my own, how can I get help? What kind of activities are useful when planning transnational work? Questions that you may encounter in Transnational cooperation.

So how do we share and collaborate the differences and possibilities between ourselves?
The new ESF strongly focuses on good governance and partnership across Europe. This CoP supports the ESF management by: exchange approaches and deal with challenges faced by programme and project managers establish an online platform to facilitate discussion and problemsolving provide guidance and building institutional capacity for those involved in the new ESF contribute to develop a tool for partner search to promote strategic contact at both project and programme level Why a CoP on transnational exchange and cooperation?
The primary purpose of the CoP is to facilitate transnational exchange and cooperation between programme managers of ESF programmes from all Member States. The community content draws on the experience and active contribution of its members. By sharing little of your knowledge or concern here, you can access knowledge from all of Europe to assist you in your work. The practical support and the tools available in this CoP can also be useful as well at project level as outside the ESF programmes. Training, On line forum, documents etc. WHAT ?
The purpose of the CoP is to professionalise the transnational implementation of ESF programmes by providing a collaborative environment to exchange experience and good practice, access to a library and expert advice, possible collaboration, partner search etc. Therefore all transnational contact points should be abale to actively participate in the CoP WHO ?
Since Dec 2006 an operational team (8 MS) From Feb 2008, 1 repr from every MS (all 27) From June 2008, all relevant programme managers involved with TN issues (perhaps several per MS) Starting with a learning seminar. WHEN ?
