COARM Final Assessment Event

Event date: 07/11/2017 - 08/11/2017 Export event

The Final Assessment Event for the COARM III Outreach Project was held on 7-8 November 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. This was the last event under the COARM III project, whose two-year implementation period will come to an end on 21 December 2017.

The aim of this event was to bring together the 17 core partner countries of the project and EU experts from the COARM group to review the work and outcomes achieved under COARM III and then, looking forward, to determine the needs and expectations for the next project, COARM IV.

On the first day of the event, representatives from Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Kosovo*, Moldova, Montenegro, Morocco, Serbia, Tunis and Ukraine, as well as EU experts from Germany, Sweden, the UK, Greece, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Latvia discussed assistance provided under COARM III and how this benefited the partner countries. The second day was dedicated to informing participants about the next COARM project and discussing in regionally-organised breakout groups the specific needs of each region and ways to best address these under the new project.

Representatives from Kazakhstan, Jordan and Turkey were also present at the event as observers, as these three countries have been invited to join the COARM IV project as cooperation partners.
