The NEST workshops in Budapest and Luxembourg taught participants to structure, organize and design projects for supra-regional institutions to possibly fund for completion. Representatives from 9 organizations met for a training workshop in September and November 2017 in Budapest and Luxembourg. The participants came from Italy, Germany, Hungary, Spain, Czech Republik and Luxembourg.

The main lecturer Marco Provenziale captured the attention of everyone, leading them into an interactive session of ideas, methods and techniques for writing project proposals. The staff of the Italian education center "Centro La Pira" had prepared an intensive training program and led the participants into the basics of the project management, Structure of the European application and the methodology for the conception of international educational and cultural projects.

"We have learned from many examples how to get our project ideas in the right perspective. This workshop taught us how to develop a coherent overall concept and make it possible to achieve a lasting effect and to reach the widest possible circle of interested people," reports Albrecht Birkner the Starkmacher eV in Budapest. And Dani Macri who joined the workshop in Luxemburg, added: "It is incredible what the EU does to support all these projects! It is worth to syncronize our project contents and concepts with the abjectives of the EU."

Even though most of the time the group focused on classroom work and studying all the different methods, there was still a good amount of time in the evenings to get to know each other better, the group had time to explore the beautiful cities of Budapet and Luxembourg and to test some culinary specialties.  The next stage of the project group will be at Prague.
