Projects involved in the Thematic Pole 9 (TP9) “Educational Governance” of the Danube Transnational Programme (DTP) and Coordinators of the Priority Areas 7 and 9 (PA7 and PA9) of the EU Strategy of the Danube Region (EUSDR) met up in Bratislava on the 7th of November 2018. The goal of the meeting was to identify possible ways of cooperation and to update the joint capitalization strategy as two new projects (INDEED and InnoSchool) have joined the pole in the framework of the 2nd DTP call.

The meeting was attended by more than thirty stakeholders, including TP9 project partners (EDU-LAB, InnoSchool, Learning by Doing) as well as representatives from TP3 “Entrepreneurial Learning Systems” (Excellence-in-ReSTI), and coordinators of EUSDR PA7 and PA9. Stakeholders represented a wide variety of organisations, such as ministries, universities, Chambers of Commerce and Industry, NGOs and research institutes.


The capitalization meeting served as a platform for multiple purposes:

  • introducing the work of the priority areas to the representatives of the new projects that have joined the Thematic Pole
  • sharing of lessons learnt by the 1st call projects (EDU-LAB, Learning by Doing, Excellence-in-ReSTI), after almost two years of implementation
  • identify possible synergies
  • develop a joint capitalization and communication strategy
