Work Programme 2017
The 2017 annual work programme builds on the experience accumulated over several years of operations of the Networking Platform.
Networking Platform multi-country capacity building, knowledge sharing and networking activities aim at increasing the administrative capacity of JASPERS counterparts by addressing subjects of mutual interest while at the same time fostering peer-to-peer learning, dissemination of good practices and exchange of experiences.
The objective is transferring to the relevant authorities the practical know-how required for the sound preparation and appraisal of major and non-major projects in the framework of ESI funds.
