Defining innovation in the context of the UIA Initiative

Short description
With the 17 projects approved in the first UIA Call for Proposals now concretely starting their implementation activities and still a few weeks before the deadline of the second Call for Proposals closes, it was time for the Permanent Secretariat to draw some initial lessons from the first Call. Raffaele Barbato, Project Coordinator, looked at the proposals submitted in the first Call, and more especially at the approved projects, to identify trends and specificities in terms of innovation but also of partnerships and measurability of results.

Great interest for the first ever UIA webinars!

Over the course of February, the UIA Permanent Secretariat held a series of four webinars aimed at supporting potential applicants in their UIA project development. Find out more about the participation and watch the recordings in case you missed them!
