These webinars, attended by more than 300 participants, provided an overview on the cohesion and rural development funds, several direct funding programmes as well as tools and instruments to access funds and make them useful for regions. Following the high interest of regions and regional stakeholders for the training webinars, AER published a user-friendly booklet to guide regions and their stakeholders in getting oriented throughout the resources available and how to access them.

What is the Assembly of European Regions?
Established in 1985, the Assembly of European Regions (AER) is the largest independent network of regions in wider Europe, gathering over 130 member regions from 30 different countries – from Norway to Turkey and from Georgia to Portugal. The network supports regions to improve their policies and practices on all topics relevant to regional policy making by providing a space for experience exchange and policy learning.
What is the Skillnet project ?
In many regions, one of the main challenges is the skills mismatch between the industry and the workforce, which this project aims to address. Co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme, Skillnet comes from the identification of challenges and problems for Vocational Education and Training systems. The Skillnet project aims to establish and reinforce cross-network collaboration and cross-border networking and partnerships capacity of Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers, public authorities and policymakers. In addition, Skillnet aims to build the effective presence of these actors at a policy level, to ensure the effective implementation of EU programmes and to promote work-based learning while stimulating innovation and entrepreneurship.
