The expected result of the entire cycle of seminars was to ensure the staff of project partners develop their theoretical knowledge and practical skills on the issue of multi-level governance.

The seminars were held at Regional Headquarters in Dubrovnik and Pula in four days (two days in each location), designed as follows:

-Day One included, first of all, an introduction to the concept of multi-level governance and its implications, as well as a discussion of the drivers behind its growing relevance. Secondly, participants had the opportunity to reflect on how stakeholder analysis can be purposefully carried out also thanks to a role-play. The role-play served as the starting point to introduce the concept of “framing”.

-Day Two focused, first of all, on how public issues are “framed”. Secondly, participants had the opportunity to reflect on the agenda setting process also thanks to a case discussion. In closing, concepts were wrapped up and a possible methodology to design a successful policy proposal was presented and discussed.

The program "Capacity building at the local and regional level for efficient preparation and use of the EU funds"

Keywords: Human resources, project management, EU projects, Skills improvement for the use of personal computer, Foreign language understanding (English, Italian, German or French)

A) Proposed educational activities contribute to the strengthening of human resources in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County (PGC) and local self-government units (LGUs), institutions, supporting development institutions on the territory of the county, for better preparation and implementation of development projects eligible for EU funding.

B) Identifying the needs and problems of the target groups which could be encouraged by these educational activities.

Educational activities contribute to the continuous development of the competences of employees in the PGC county and LGUs, institutions, research centers and agencies in PGC. This will enable the successful preparation and implementation of EU projects since relatively small number of employees in these institutions has the experience in application and implementation of EU projects and an even smaller number of employees participate in the implementation of EU projects. Also, on the territory of the PGC, there are significant differences in the development and availability of public financial resources between individual LGUs, especially comparing the islands and the micro region Gorski Kotar in relation to the coastal part of the county, which is reflected in the preparedness of the employees for the development and implementation of EU projects.
