Innovation&Learning Journey for the PA Awards 2022 Winners and Special Recognitions
ReSPA is organizing Innovation&Learning Journey for this year’s Winners and Initiatives awarded with Special Recognition of the Public Administration Award 2022.
One of the fundamental ideas of the Public Administration Awards 2022 edition was is to identify and promote the successful examples of inspiring practices from Western Balkans public administrations so that they may be a model to follow or provide the capacity for faster adoption of the respective solution in the provision of public services throughout the region. PA Award 2022 has recognized eleven practices named the public administration inspirational, good practices in the Western Balkans.
Alongside its strategic mission, Respa and the OECD/SIGMA pay special attention to sharing and exchanging good practices within the Western Balkans but also with good practices from other parts of Europe, primarily from the EU PA Awards schemes and database. As it is well known and evidenced, one of the most obvious ways in which to face challenges for one own public administration in the Western Balkans and beyond is to reach out to each other, identify (other) best practices, learn from each other, and make use of other’s expertise, creating economies of scale across a network of partners.
For this reason, the three winners of the 2022 PA Awards for the Western Balkan will be rewarded with and benefit from three tailored innovation and learning capacity-building units that will include peer-to-peer dialogue, exclusively designed and organized for winning teams, that will take place on 26th, 27th and 28th of October in Barcelona, Spain. The representatives from the initiatives that were awarded Special Recognition award will join their colleagues at one day Innovation Action Day that will take place on 28th of October.
With these “Innovation and Learning Journeys”, the winners will get a unique insight into the major trends, new methodologies for change and better public services, supported by hands-on practices and stewardship from the different European cultures in the respective thematic field, combined with hands-on training.
