Between the 7th and 10th May 2022, the Peace Operations Training Centre (POTC) has successfully implemented the first module on EU project management in Prijedor, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Improved capacities for project proposal preparation will help Bosnia and Herzegovina to work more closely with EU partners and secure more EU funding for BiH’s development.
23 local government officials and NGO representatives from municipalities surrounding Prijedor participated in a four-day training program delivered by Slovenian experts Gorazd Jenko and Slavka Zupan. During these days, they shared knowledge and practical expertise on EU project management with a particular focus on the application procedures. Interactive lessons and group work constituted a large part of the training program and the facilitators steered participants towards establishing concrete project proposal ideas. Participants will continue working on project ideas and will form them into concrete ready-to-submit proposals in Module 2 that will be delivered in Prijedor in September.
The project was carried out with the support of the Slovenian Ministry of Defence and the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
