The Summer School

OpenMed Association and MaPE – University of Cagliari, with the support of ASCAME, CCIA-BML, CEEBA, Re.C.O.Med and Italian Federation of Anna Lindh Foundation organize the “Design your MED initiative!” - Euro-Mediterranean Cooperation Summer School that will be held in Cagliari, Sardinia (Italy) from the 27th to the 30st of June 2017.


The course aims at improving exchanges of competences and relations between public and private representatives of Mediterranean organizations interested in co-operation programs and projects. The idea is, in particular, to present and share the main skills and direct experiences related to Euro-Mediterranean projects and start the design of new project proposals that can be submitted under current and next funding opportunities. The first Call for Proposal of the new ENI CBC MED 2014-2020 programme is expected to be launched by June 2017, representing a great occasion to develop partnership and starting the elaboration of proposals during the 3 days in Cagliari.

The main objectives of the Summer School are:

  • improve competences and relations  of individuals interested in Euro-Mediterranean cooperation
  • share the Euro-Mediterranean projects experiences among participants and trainers
  • start the concrete design of proposals under the new Euro-Mediterranean funding instruments, in particular ENI CBC MED 2014-2020


During the Summer School, Project Cycle Management and Logical Framework approaches will be used as main working tools. The working approach is based on the “learning by doing” methodologies, drafting a project idea using the official application forms.  Furthermore, an official Project’s Assessor experienced in EU and International Programs will highlight strengths and weaknesses of each proposal. The official language of the Summer School is English.
