Peer Learning Workshop on Partner Management, 15 October 2014, Bilbao

The workshop, organized by NENET in close cooperation with RAEE and the hosting partner EVE, provided concrete examples and testimonies from experienced partners. In addition, the workshop highlighted success factors and transferability conditions, provided indications about the tools and methodologies available, allowed learning partners to share their needs and concerns as well as to recommend subjects to be further discussed during follow-up sessions which will be organized through the ENERGee-WATCH network or through bilateral discussions with experienced partners. During the peer learning workshop, each project partner involved in the creation of a new observatory had the opportunity to present and discuss their own preliminary implementation plan during a practical review exercise with other partners.
