National Supporting Institution organized 1st Transnational Partner Forum on 22nd and 23rd of November 2010 in Poland (Warsaw). The representatives from three countries took part in the Forum: Poland, Sweden and England,  together over 80 participants. They represented 55 projects (28 projects from Poland, 11 from Sweden and 16 from England) at different stages of implementation  –  some of them were at stage  of the “project idea”, several already received financing but not started its project implementation but most of them were in different stages of project implementation.

The main purpose of the Polish Forum was to enable the participants to find suitable partners.  Therefore, apart from the short introductory phase with some interesting presentations on differences pertaining to the ESF implementation systems in each country, the main focus was put on discussions around tables divided according to 6 areas:

  • Work Age;
  • 50+/Education;
  • Support to disfavoured groups I;
  • Support to disfavoured groups II;
  • Qualifications Improving;
  • Social economy, academic enterpreneurship and social responsibility of business.

These areas were elaborated on the basis of the project’s fiches sent by the participants before the event to the National Supporting Institution Team.  At each table moderators were leading the discussions in order to help the participants find the suitable partnerships.  Those of the participants,  who could not find any partners during the first day at their table were re-examined and during the second day these projects were assigned to other tables with further possibility of partner match. 

At the end of the second day each table announced how many potential partners were found - it came up that almost all projects had succeeded.  Some of them have already signed the letter of intent for further cooperation. As the 1st Transnational Partner Forum was positively evaluated by participants and National Supporting Institution plans to organize similar events in 2011.
