Synergies between Outermost Regions for trainings

Azores

Canary Islands

Guadeloupe

French Guiana

La Reunion

Madeira

Martinique

Mayotte

Saint-Martin

During the last WP4* Technical meeting of 15th october 2020, each Outermost Region presented their needs regarding trainings to increase their capacities to answer to European Framework Programs  / H2020 calls

Led by Azores, the WP4 leader will support each OR in the implementation of their action plan.

After identifying their needs in trainings, the next step is to connect OR through synergies, in order to reinforce their capacities and strenghten collaboratives actions.

Therefore, a regional coordinator was designated per OR.

The WP4 leader defined the target areas for capacity building with the presentation of :

  • Forward skills (management in innovation, identification of calls) ;
  • EU funding (Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe, Life +, Best, Regional European funds);
  • Human ressources capacities (financial management, training in specfic areas, network building)
