Track I – Policy Sharing for KT
Capacity Building: a follow up to Progress-TT

Creating value from knowledge is the daily challenge for KTOs. Their performance is linked to their capacity and building it is a challenge for institutions, KT professionals and policymakers.

This session will consider the capacity-building experience gained during the EU-funded initiative Progress-TT; reviewing methodologies, lessons learned and best practices. In addition, the session will try to discern how to make capacity-building actions consistent and sustainable for the benefit of emerging and incumbent KTOs.
