On Tuesday and Wednesday, representatives from the Agency for the Development of the Empolese Valdelsa attended on behalf of the partnership to the Finance and Project activities and results training. During these days, the lead partner learnt more about the financial reporting and control procedures and requirements related to the management of Interreg Europe projects. On the following day, the managers enlarged their knowledge about the programme’s expectations related to the reporting of activities, good practices, and results. They will transfer this knowledge to the rest of the partners.
Alicia Gaban (EARLALL) participated in the Communications Training on the final day. She met with the Interreg Europe Communications Team and other project team members. Through three interactive sessions, communications managers explored how to communicate better project stories and how to follow the communications requirements of the programme. During the final “Share & Learn” session, participants exchanged tips and tools to improve Interreg Europe projects communications strategies.
SKYLA’s overall objective is to support public authorities in putting future skills at the centre of the twin transitions for a smarter, more resilient development, by boosting and adapting the role of VET in innovation ecosystems and smart specialisation strategies.
