On February 5, 2018 a roundtable discussion on the Cross-Border Cooperation Program Kolarctic 2014-2020 took place in the Center for Business Development of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The aim of the roundtable discussion was to involve potential project partners from the Nenets Autonomous Okrug into the 3rd Call for Proposals.
The meeting was attended by experienced applicants, whose projects were approved for co-financing by the Kolarctic CBC Programme within the 2nd Call for Proposals, as well as by potential applicants without experience of participating in the Programme. The discussion was lively, the applicants shared experiences and actively asked questions.
During the discussion, the topic of partners search was brought up by the participants. The potential applicants expressed their need in finding a partner in Sweden, Finland and Norway. However, the applicants and those who are looking for partners have the opportunity to use the databases that are presented on the Kolarctic website (Kolarctic CBC Partner Search, KEEP Database, Project Portal ), as well as put the information about their organizations in Partner Search, which can simplify the search for a suitable partner.
Although, the Managing Authority and Branch Offices do not involve into the partners search, the Kolarctic team welcomes potential project partners by sharing their contacts gained during the Kolarctic CBC Programme’s operation.
