Let’s practice capitalisation!

Wednesday, 19 June, 2019 to Friday, 21 June, 2019
Athens, Greece

During the last 3 years Interact has supported Cooperation programmes’ approaches to work on the capitalisation and communication of their results. As outcome of the events and networking activities in 2018, several needs have been raised by programmes:

  • How could capitalisation be further developed and streamlined across co-operation programmes?
  • Pave the way for embedding capitalisation since the beginning of the next programming period, as a mandatory element to be recognised,
  • Even if capitalisation can’t be developed in a uniform way across ETC strands (including Interreg IPA-CBC and ENI), it has common important factors: it allows creating a better understanding of what programmes are doing and it allows generating new synergies and impacts.
  • Capitalisation has a key role in bringing programmes and projects’ contents closer to EU citizen’s needs.
  • Interact should continue with its support to programmes, developing tailored models and services, as well as templates for the definition of capitalisation strategies.

Do not hesitate to share your inputs or ideas for these events. Please comment on the on-line community (link) !!   YOU SHAPE THE EVENTS’ AGENDAS!

Building on these points, programmes are invited to exchange and define on the possible support and tools as to use concretely a capitalisation approach in the programme life-cycle.

Following a survey about stakeholder's preferences for location, the 3 events will take place in Athens, Greece, from 19 to 21 June 2019. 


The objectives of each event are the following:

  3. Possible exploitation of the final version of the “Capitalisation Toolkit”

  5. Define the main assets for capitalisation at project level

Cap&Com Workshop 4: How to link capitalisation and communication (20 June)

  2. Provide practical training and tips for the use of infographics, videos and innovative design linked to programmes’ communication;
  3. To learn about the most effective approaches to extracting and communicating capitalisation content from multitude of thematic projects to the appropriate target groups, especially traditional media such as press and journalists

Who is it for?

This series of events is dedicated to Interreg, Interreg IPA-CBC and ENI CBC programmes’ staff from the Joint Secretariats, Managing Authorities and other relevant programme bodies or stakeholders (NCPs, MC Members, etc.).

We address in particular staff members that are: 

  • coordinating and/or directly involved in project monitoring
  • dealing with specific thematic issues and/or topics
  • communicating the results of the programmes

The event is particularly indicated for those programmes which intend to know more about capitalisation and are setting up a sort of thematic specialization or analytical process of projects’ and programmes results.
