Transnational ESF platform

Partnership Thematic Network


Leda Stott, AEIDL (Belgium)


The goal of the network is to provide a vibrant space for learning about partnership in order to assist Managing Authorities, Intermediate Bodies and wider stakeholders from across the European Structural and Investment Funds to improve their partnership practice. The Thematic Network on Partnership was launched in Brussels in November 2015 and is one of ten new transnational networks that form part of the ESF Transnational Platform managed by AEIDL. Founding members include ESF Managing, Authorities and Intermediate Bodies from Belgium (Flanders), Estonia, Germany, Ireland and Sweden, as well as representatives from the European Commission, social partners and NGOs. The European Centre was involved in the Thematic Network on Partnership by providing input and advice.
