Event (& blog!) 27 – 30 April 2015: Effective Partnerships with the Private Sector (by SDC)

Swiss Employment and Income Network gathers in Thun, Switzerland, to discuss how to make partnerships with private sector effective

From 27 to 30 April 2015 the Employment and Income Network (e+i) of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) organises a Face-to-Face (F2F) meeting on ‘Effective Partnerships with the Private Sector’. 

The purpose of the e+i network – and its F2F in particular – is making e+i programs and projects more effective. Identifying gaps concerning our knowledge and instruments and finding ways to close them is one important aspect in this quest. We do this by collecting your and other expert’s experiences, by discussing and synthesizing them.

Participants will: (i) Explore and discuss ways of engaging with the private sector in vocational skills development (VSD), private and financial sector development (PSD and FSD); (ii) Learn about practical tools and experiences in working with the private sector from other VSD, PSD and FSD programmes and projects, as well as from experts; (iii) Network and establish new ways to better interact and exchange with the learning community and use the e+i network support them in their daily work.
