The Spanish NGO Coordinator of Ongds (development NGOs) coordinated with the Spanish partner Bantec to arrange a first online meeting with two of the main representatives of the platform that were Doctors of the World and Action Aid. Both CSOs were very interested in participating in H2020 even one of them had tried unsuccessfully to launch a proposal specifically for the challenge of ‘Secure Societies’.
The first contact was online format on the 23rd October 2015. After a brief introduction of Bantec’s roll in the project, the first results of the project, it was then deepened in the guide H2020 that the project announced in the event organized in Berlin last September 2015. This document and its applicability was particularly interesting for the audience and they requested formally to have a face to face meeting in Madrid with all the CSOs that are part of the CONGD in December 2015 in which to do a workshop and go in detail about each of the steps outlined in the guide H2020.
Finally some topics were discussed that Bantec had previously selected and sent. Some of them were of interest to them. It was said that this was an approach very tangible and concrete through which they could understand how to participate in the program ‘secure societies’.
If you are an entity interested in participating, please contact us through the website and we will be delighted to inform you.
