Brief introduction WP7 and WP8Relevance WPs for planning & implementation of regional policiesChallenges to link to wider regional development plansMain considerations to maximise effectiveness of work with regions…with a focus on the situation in pilot regions.
4 WP 7 – Action Learning Programme (1) 4 workshops & virtual action learning sets (“Elluminate Live!”):Needs assessmentEntry pointsEconomic evidenceAction planning20 participants per workshopEach region gets travel costs & subsistence allowances: 700 € for one person, up to if more than one person participatesWorkshops hosted by Polish & Slovene pilot regions & two other EU10 locations
5 WP 7 – Action Learning Programme (2) Target audience: Stakeholders in participating regionsApproach:Taking regions from their starting points (what has been achieved)Exchange between regions & of region-specific development scenariosTranslation of evidence & experience into actionStarting with pilot regions (see also WP8)
6 WP 8 – Capacity BuildingPractical support to access/use knowledge & experienceKey elements:Capacity building audit & re-audit in participating regionsDevelopment & review of policy matrix (with key stakeholders)Creation and coordination of expert networks for workshops, virtual action learning sets, mentoring
