Training sessions on Project Preparation in Serbia

In order to complete the series of trainign sessions on project preparation held in Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in autumn of 2009, CBIB II advertised another round of these capacity building events in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia in the first quarter of 2010.

Potential Applicants from Serbia showed great interest in the training sessions as almost 400 applied for trainings. The schedule of dates and locations was made according to the number of participants and their place of residence.

Training participants

Participants represented various sectors and areas of life – local and national authorities, NGOs, CSOs, schools, health and social care institutions, public enterprises, art and culture institutions, etc. This was the first time that CBIB was holding training sessions in Serbia and great interest and readiness of people to acquire knowledge and try their hand at obtining grants from IPA funds was inspiring for our trainers int he field.

Furthermore, fruitful cooperation was established with the Office for Sustainable Development of Underdeveloped Areas of the Government of Republic of Serbia (KORNRP). In cooperation with KORNRP, CBIB organised two training sessions for the representatives of some of the least developed municiapalities in Serbia with the aim of presenting them with the possibilities of obtaining grants from IPA funds that could contribute to the improvement of the quality of life in their local communities.

Training objectives

The main objective of these tree-day training sessions was to provide the potential applicants for IPA CBC programmes with Western Balkan neighbours that Serbia participates in – with Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina – the essential information and knowledge to help them understand the logic behind preparing cross-border projects and applying for grants from IPA funds.

All the sessions were organised as a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical exercises. All parts of the project preparation process according to the Logical Framework Approcah were presented, as well as how to fill in the application form, the Logframe and the budget.

Both local and national media adequately covered the training sessions organised in Serbia – Radio Television of Vojvodina aired a feature on their main evening news cast.

Pictures from the training sessions can be found in our Photo Gallery.
