Step by Step
How about establishing relationships with like-minded local and regional administrations across Europe?
When leaders put their heads together is when the gamechangers emerge; collaboration is key, especially in the world of urban finance. Take the chance to establish a strong network and stay connected to the future!
Become a leader in innovative finance among others and in the eyes of the Commission and other EU organisations and businesses.
Not just during the visits, but also during PROSPECT workshops, presentations, events, and dissemination activities throughout our Europe-wide network.
This is an excellent opportunity to look back at your progress, and learn to articulate your key achievements.
Even leaders can learn, and visiting cities have often helped hosts to develop fresh insights into the course of their progress.
Don’t waste your time and resources on issues that other cities / regions have already solved. Why battle through the bushes when the road to success has already been paved?
Hosts don’t want to educate you with an instruction manual; these visits are about structured dialogue that will help you evaluate your options and be inspired by new possibilities.
Study visits consistently yield results that either translate into direct replication of learned practices, or into fundamental insights that guide future policy.
Get the chance to be certified as an innovative financing professional at the end of the programme.
