Ento

European Network Training Organisation for Local and Regional Authorities

During the ENTO bureau meeting in Strasbourg, a specific session was devoted to sharing information and views with Congress Secretariat Representatives, Ms. Marité Moras and Mr. Dimitri Marschenkov. Mr. Marschenkov explained the activities that the Congress is undertaking within the Neighbourhood Programme, especially with Morocco and Tunisia. He underlined that one of the priority consists in strengthening the training capacity of local training institutions and associations. That is why he showed a specific interest in ENTO training of trainers initiatives and  specifically in the job-shadowing programme. 

Ms. Moras illustrated the state of the art of cooperation programs with Ukraine, Armenia, Moldova and Georgia. She expressed a specific interest in the proposal of a certification in the field of local leadership as described in the VESTA action plan.

Both Mr. Marschenkov and Ms. Moras underlined as a cutting-edge topic for all projects within the Council of Europe is gender mainstreaming, so ideas and training proposals that deal with such a topic can be of great interest.

They also expressed their intention to come back to ENTO with concrete cooperation proposals in the next months.

Slavutych is situated on the left bank of the Dnieper River, 40 kilometers from Chernihiv, 45 kilometers from the city of Pripyat, 50 kilometers from Chernobyl (both in Ivankiv Raion) and 200 kilometers from Kiev.
While being geographically located in Ripky Raion (part of Chernihiv Oblast), administratively it belongs to Kiev Oblast.

The city was built in 1986 shortly after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, to provide homes for those who had worked at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and their families. They were evacuated  from the abandoned city of Pripyat. Slavutych is named after the Old Slavic name of the nearby Dnieper. 
From the start, Slavutych was planned to become a “21stcentury city”. Compared to other cities in Ukraine, Slavutych has a modern architecture with pleasant surroundings, and the standard of  iving in the city is much higher than in most other Ukrainian cities. During the construction of the city, workers and architects from eight former soviet republics became involved: Armenian SSR, Azerbaijan SSR, Estonian SSR, Georgian SSR, Latvian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, Russian SFSR and Ukrainian SSR. As a result, the city is divided into eight districts named after the capitals of  he contributing republics,[2] each with its own unique style and atmosphere.

What about spending 1 week, 1 month or even more in another ENTO members looking at how things are working there, exchanging views about the most effective ways to deliver training?
That it the basic question underpinning the idea of organizing a job shadowing program within ENTO. 

Some funding opportunities would also be available: for example for universities which can apply for ERASMUS+ granting. But even other kind of organizations can find ways for strengthening  their links with other institutions.

That is a topic which is going to be discussed in next ENTO SummerLab. 

Still now, who is interested in such an opportunity, please show up writing to paolo.crugnola@edu.ti.ch

Mr. Giorgi Meshkidze, ENTO vice President reported during latest Bureau meeting, about the contacts he had with the Major of Slavutych (Ukraine) in order to organize there the 2018 ENTO  annual conference and general assembly. The proposal was heartily welcomed by the major and the staff. 

The general assembly in Slavutych can represent a first test of the orientation towards study tours described above. That is why it is expected to be opened not only to ENTO members but also to students, politicians and civil servants from different countries. 

Mr. Meshkidze took the lead of the organization in cooperation with Mr. Olexandre Meshalkin and Mr. Grigorii Borsch, from ASK. A big thanks to all our Friends for the effort they are putting in organizing such a special event.

ENTO was invited by CNFPT to take part to the seminar “Public Administration and Practice” which took place in Strasbourg on 5-6 April.

The aim of the seminar was to shed light in the relationship of Public Administration and practice and to answer the following questions: When, how and why is Public Administration relevant? Or irrelevant in research, advice, teaching…?

EPPA project is financed by the Anneliese Maier Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt- Foundation. It is implemented by  professor Geert Bouckaert (KU Leuven) and professor Werner
Jann (Potsdam University), within the institutional context of the European Group for Public Administration (EGPA), and the European regional group within the International Institute of
Administrative Sciences (IIAS).
The project was initiated in May 2014 and runs until 2019.
