Conclusion for Project Partners

We are currently discussing the acheivements of our Leonardo Partnership Project and looking to the future on a farm guesthouse in Katwoude, Netherlands.  It is interesting to receive feedback from our partners in respect of what they have acheived personally and as an organisation from our project.  We have achieved our primary stated project goals and everyone has benefited in many ways from being involved in EU cooperation project.

I have asked each of the partners to share their thoughts on what they have gained from the project here and I will update later with more concrete outcomes of this project. We are continuing now with our preparation for our dissemination event which has been planned for tomorrow.

Meeting was held on farm B&B in Katwoude, Netherlands

The burning question now is to identify a way forward for our network and how our rural tourism training network can support its members.  This is our main objective for our meeting tomorrow.

Project Dissemination?

What does project dissemination mean? For others who work in the commercial world and not funded through EU cooperation projects would call it marketing or promotion or publicity.  For me it is all of these and perhaps a little more in the case of our Leonardo Partnership Project.

We have been lucky of enough to be supported through the EU Leonardo Programme and for me it is important to inform others of the work that has been undertaken as a part of our project.  Dissemination is an important element of any project and it is essential to ensure that as wide an audience as possible knows about our work, Leonardo opportunities and potential for future collaborations.

Sometimes, project partners are not familiar with the need to communicate beyond the realms of the immediate project partnership.  This blog has provided a platform for our project partners to communicate and as means of showing others the benefits of our project.  Sometimes each partner needs encouragement to conduct their own dissemination activities, in their own languages. 

Our Romanian colleagues have added details to there own website in the Hungarian language and also had an article publicished in a local newspaper in the Romanian language. The collective efforts of the partners ensures that our project is widely disseminated throughout the EU and within each partners countries. See some of our partner dissemination activity links below which are related to the recent launch of our ‘train the trainer’ programme:
