More than 32 organizations participated on February 8 and 9, 2024, in the Consortium Building Special Seminar jointly organized by the Lebanese Development Network (LDN) and Jovesolides, Spain.

The event was held at the CaixaForum in Valencia. It brought together around 40 participants from 12 different countries to discuss concept notes and create solid projects vis-à-vis the two EU-funded Programs, Erasmus Plus and Interreg NEXT MED.

In turn, LDN’s president Amin Nehme elucidated the objectives of the Seminar and highlighted the significance of creating similar partnerships. Nehme emphasized the impact this event may provide to the participating organizations on both the personal and the organizational levels.

Activity coordinator and facilitator Vladislav Petkov inaugurated the sessions with an introduction about the Agenda and the course of action to be followed over the two days. 

During the first day, the Concept Notes were presented by the Lead Partners, co-partners were selected, and groups were formed.

During the second day, round tables were organized to enable consortium members discuss further details in terms of structures, proposed activities, roles, tasks and budgets.

The second day ended with a deliberation session through which a final review of the consortiums and the follow-up procedure to be adopted were set.
