Partnership Fair 2013

13-15 March 2013 in Vienna


TRIALOG hosted the fourth edition of the Partnership Fair from 13 to 15 March, 2013 in Vienna. At this event around 120 participants from development CSOs across the EU worked on possible projects for the NSA-LA Development Education call. The Partnership Fair is a learning, networking and project-designing event organised by TRIALOG since 2006 on a regular basis before relevant EC Calls for Proposals. TRIALOG aims to include representatives not only from NGOs but also from trade unions, academia, political foundations and Local Authorities.




The PARTNERSHIP FAIR 2013 started with a session, held by Greta Jensen, on "How to write a successful project proposal", which was designed for newcomers. The official part started in the afternoon with welcoming words by Erwin Eder, Chairman of the Executive Committee of HORIZONT3000 (TRIALOG's Austrian Lead Agency). The following session consisted of two presentations, the first input came from Markus Pirchner, Head of Sector DEVCO D2 of the European Commission explaining the Multi-Annual Indicative Programme 2014-2020 of the EC and an outlook on the DEAR Call for Proposal 2013, which is planned to be published in September. Then Helmuth Hartmeyer of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) shared an overview on Austria‘s activities regarding DEAR. Later in the afternoon, Inka Pibilova presented lessons learnt from NSA LA project evaluation and DEEEP 4, a project of the CONCORD DARE Forum, was introduced. The day concluded with a market place, where all participants could present the work of their organisations and get to know each other better.


On the following two days, the participants discussed their project ideas in small working groups. They were supported by invited experts to transform their ideas in concrete project objectives, results and activities. In the end 15 Partnership Pre-Agreements were signed which will be further elaborated for submission under the expected NSA LA Development Education Call in September.
