ABOUT EVENT AND EXPERTS
With the motto „Sharing experience and excellence”
Concordis.eu invites you to join the practical training
seminar devoted to promotion and communication of EU
programmes and projects.
The programming period of 2007­2013 is steadily moving
from the implementation stage to closure. Therefore, the
question ‘How to speak about success?’ is of utmost
importance. We have constructed this workshop as a very
practical training and experience exchange with speakers
from the Member States and acknowledged experts from
the private sector.
Existing practices in the public and private sector will be
presented as case studies by the experts and the possibil­
ity of using such practices in the promotion of EU
programme results will be discussed by the experts and
participants. During the event you will be able to speak with
your fellow professionals in the communication field,
exchange the best practices from your programmes and
learn from experts about achieving communication goals
within budget limits.
