The European Centre of Excellence network is focusing on five main aspects:
1.- Close collaboration with the region's NRAs with the aim of developing training curricula that corresponds to the actual training needs of the region.
2.- The formation of public - private partnerships by joining forces with the private sector in the provision of training. The collaboration occurs both in defining the training agenda and ascertaining the necessary financial and technical support in the form of sponsorships and grants for individual training interventions and general human capacity building events.
3.- Reinforcement of the CoE-EUR network of training providers and further inclusion of more local training providers.
