Managing and delivering an EU-funded project can be challenging for a Civil Society Organisation, an academic institution or an NGO.
The partners need to collaborate and co-create in order to deliver a project with lots of dependencies, and in a short period of time. The struggle is real.
If this is challenging enough for one organisation, imagine when the average project brings together several partners from different parts of Europe, with various workplace cultures, and specialized in different fields of expertise.
But fear not. These types of collaborations are commonplace in the private sector, from which we can learn a lot.
Part of the secret to a successful collaboration comes from building a co-creating environment based on trust, willingness to share and learn from each other. In other words, creating a community of people engaged and committed to achieving a shared goal.
At this practical online session, you will learn the community-building approaches used in organisations such as the City of Helsinki or the elevator manufacturer Kone.
You will learn how to:
- bring large crowds together to solve challenges by building fast, efficient, agile and fun community processes.
- how to build internal and external communities
- a methodology to turn your stakeholders and consortium partners into active co-creators
This workshop is thought for those who oversee and manage EU-funded projects in:
- Civil society organizations
- Trade associations
- Private companies
What: Lunch & Learn: turn partners into co-creators, a community approach for EU-funded projects.
- Thursday, 1 December 2022, from 11.30 to 13:00
