INTERREG 4C JOINT TECHNICAL SECRETARIAT – Programme level capitalisation (Entrepreneurship)
Thematic expertise – entrepreneurship
During 2012 Aurora was selected to support INTERREG 4C to lead the programme’s capitalisation work in the Entrepreneurship theme . With Eddy Adams and Sally Kneeshaw Aurora undertook a comparative analysis of innovative and promising approaches and practices identified within 8 Entrepreneurship projects. The aim was to develop effective policy recommendations at regional, national and / or European level and to create a strategic framework within which projects can better share their results and identify success factors, synergies and transferable features. The results were launched at Open Days 2013 and are available here.
‘Alison led the first phase of our INTERREG IVC capitalisation work on entrepreneurship. Throughout the process she was constructive and creative in terms of content and rigorous in terms of process and results. Alison and her team went the extra mile to try and meet our expectations. The Thematic Workshop they facilitated was a highlight – participants exchanged experiences and learnt from each other in a fun and stimulating environment and the feedback was incredibly positive. All in all a job well done.’
Nicolas Singer, Senior Project Officer at INTERREG IVC
‘It has been a pleasure to work with Alison on the INTERREG IVC programme thematic capitalisation. Heading a team of experts composed of Sally Kneeshaw and Eddy Adams, Alison delivered a sound analysis which benchmarks good practices identified by INTERREG IVC projects dealing with ‘Entrepreneurship’. This work required specific knowledge of the thematic as well as a thorough understanding of the specificities of interregional cooperation. The report and the publication are of great added-value to the INTERREG IVC programme as they conclude with concrete policy recommendations to the attention of local and regional public authorities’
