Partnership is a central principle in the preparations of the next programme. It ensures the involvement of economic, social and environmental partners, including NGOs. Examples of good practice include involving representatives of different interests in the programming processes such as evaluation. An active involvement of public, economic, civil society and environmental partners should be ensured.
In October 2020, the Managing Authority has published a survey to be spread to all interest groups and citizens if the region. The MA wants the people to express their opinion on the selection and prioritization of themes.
Later, different stakeholder groups will be involved in further setting of the objectives.
