Bilateral meetings with European Partnerships’ Representatives [Parallel session 1, POLICY ANSWERS Conf. 2023 Sarajevo]

The POLICY ANSWERS Conference aimed at stimulating a policy dialogue on aligning priorities in the Western Balkans across three thematic areas. In order to support this objective, dedicated bilateral meetings within the conference were organised to enable the European partnerships and representatives of the relevant ministries and funding organisations from the WB economies to briefly meet and exchange. This Conference was the first major event to bring the WB economies and European partnership together.

15 minutes long bilateral meetings were scheduled for each thematic area, which run separately and parallel to the World Café sessions. European Partnerships were appointed as „Table hosts”, whereas the representatives of the WB Ministries/Funding Agencies visited the tables according to their schedules in 15 minutes turns.

In total, 38 bilateral meetings took place within 1 hour 45 minutes. This “speed dating” structure was a first time experience for the representatives. In these short meetings, European Partnerships focused on understanding the needs and interests of the Ministry representatives and presented the structure of their partnership, priority R&I topics for joint calls and various collaboration opportunities beyond joint calls.
