ANCE as a coordinator of the project “A New Approach in Cultural Learning for Promoting the Social Inclusion of Migrants and Refugees” (NEST) participated to the Project Coordinators` Meeting of Social Inclusion Projects, which took place on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 February 2020. The meeting was held by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) in Brussels.
The general objectives of the Coordinators Meeting were the following:
- Inform project coordinators about the procedures and rules to be followed for financial and operational management (e.g. managing the budget, making amendment requests and reporting on progress/final results, audits) and enable them to ask questions on these issues;
- Enable synergies where relevant and strengthen the link between projects and their policy context;
- Enable project coordinators to meet the colleagues at the Executive Agency responsible for their projects, to meet representatives of the Commission dealing with the relevant policy aspects;
- Foster networking between the project coordinators.
On Friday, 14 February in the afternoon, the Agency organised bilateral face-to-face meetings for all coordinators to discuss specific issues / questions relating to their projects with their project and financial officers.
