Partnership Fair 2010
150 civil society representatives from 25 different countries joined the Partnership Fair in Vienna between 15th and 17th of February 2010.
The partnership fair was a learning, networking and project-designing event, gathering more than 150 participants mainly from development CSOs from across Europe coming from different sectors (development education, human rights, environment, gender etc). Many key development actors (representatives of the EC, universities, local authorities, and trade unions) contributed either as speakers, facilitators or participants.
The event included:
Presentations on EuropeAid funding mechanisms and civil society perspectives on these mechanisms,
a Market Place where participants had the possibility to directly present their own organisations,
Expert Presentations on partnerships and partners such as the local authorities, on how to write a project proposal and on how to finance these projects and, most importantly, concrete work on project ideas and shaping up project proposals for future calls.
Have a look at the list of participating organisations.
