2.Sub-Carpathian Chamber of Commerce, Krosno, PL

3.Alliance of Social Professionals, Budapest, HU

4.Carpathian Foundation Hungary, Eger, HU

6.Center for Community Organizing, Central Moravia, Prerov, CZ

Expected outputs:

•V4 networking platform

•a collection of case studies/best practices of potential viable ways to approach poverty-related issues

•presentation of the results to the key audiences (a web site, a conference)

Visegrad cooperation is the basic notion on which the project is built: its purpose is to foster the V4 collaboration and capitalize on similarities in this region in order to explore and identify innovative solutions towards issues that are common for the region, and to use the expertise in all countries and, additionally, Ukraine.

The project is supported by the Visegrad Fund www.visegradfund.org.
