Partner meeting & Steering group meeting

21 - 22 June 2016 in Szczecin, POLAND

The main focus of this partner meeting was to come together to discuss the results obtained and next steps forward the producing solutions.

The key tasks were to ensure exchange between the two case studies, enable evaluation and monitoring activities as well as ensure the results of the project are filtered back to national MSP processes.

Lessons learned from the two case study areas were discussed and joint recommendations developed, for example for data exchange, mapping, SEA and monitoring and evaluation.

At the meeting progress of the case studies, exchange and country usefulness were presented. Also,  the products which are planned to be produced at the end of the project were discussed taking into account the final conference – 2nd Baltic MSP Forum which will be held on 23-24 November 2016 in Riga.

The Lessons learned and Monitoring and Evaluation framework which also are the deliverables of this project were discussed and the workshop was held to identify important outcomes that should follow from MSP collaboration and then to think how could we know if that is achieved – the point was to get ideas for relevant indicators.

To move forward the solutions and recommendations which are case specific and project conclusions were discussed in groups and sought for the joint agreement.
