The activities of the JASPERS Networking Platform were discussed at the JASPERS fifth Stakeholders meeting that has taken place in Malta on 15-16 April, 2013.
The event was attended by over one hundred representatives of the JASPERS beneficiary countries and by JASPERS' partners (EIB, DG REGIO, EBRD and KfW). Stakeholders Meetings are an opportunity for partners and beneficiary countries - the 12 Central and Eastern European Member States, Greece, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia - to discuss issues of mutual interest and to provide feedback to JASPERS.
The 2013 meeting was structured around three sessions:
1) The practice of JASPERS Cooperation / Lessons learnt in the 2007-2013 programming period.
2) The activity of JASPERS in the 2014-2020 programming period.
3) The transition between the two programming periods.
Participants expressed an unanimous support for the JASPERS the Networking Platform as a knowledge sharing and capacity building tool, which is considered an important pillar for JASPERS activities in the future.
