• Online Workshop EU Regions Week - Training for cooperation: new ways of capacity building - 11.10.2022 - Registration open!

    Whether at the interregional, transnational or cross-border level, capacity building is necessary for successful territorial cooperation. Due to the digital transition, training formats and methods for actors of cross-border cooperation are rapidly changing.
    Firstly, this workshop will present three concrete examples of online courses and trainings, confronting learners’ and trainers’ perspectives each time.

    Secondly, in a debate with the participants, the opportunities of digital training for local/regional authorities, associations and other stakeholders of cooperation as well as its limits and challenges will be discussed. Which new opportunities are arising in terms of accessibility, outreach, and the use of innovative tools? Which new challenges do training providers face regarding commitment of learners, teaching methodologies and digital skills? Finally, recommendations for the development of digital trainings in the field of territorial cooperation will be elaborated.
