Third Steering Group takes place in Tirana, Albania

The 3rd Steering Group took place in Tirana (Albania) on July 4th and 5th, 2018

On July 4th and 5th, PANORAMED held its 3rd SG in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Albania in Tirana. The Lead Partner along with the different Thematic Working Groups and Cross-Cutting Tasks presented the achievements since the last SG and their corresponding next steps to be taken in the next few months.

Indeed, Partners commended the major improvements recently implemented within the internal governance of the project. In this sense, the setup of a Coordination Team will be very useful to identify vulnerabilities and potential risks and propose solutions to the partnership.  Moreover, in order to reinforce the mutual dialogue among countries, and support accountability and ownership a Country Coordinator Network has been created.

Apart from this, Thematic Working Groups leaders showed Panoramed is well on track to present Draft Key Documents in Autumn 18, mainly the Terms of Reference of Strategic Projects on Maritime Surveillance and Coastal and Maritime Tourism.

SG members approved the creation of a new Work Package on Innovation given the strategical dimension of this issue in the post 2020 scenario in Europe. The period for applying to lead this new group was officially opened and the leadership will be elected, hopefully, in next SG
