Planet, the acronym of “thematic networks planning process” was a project co-financed by the Europe for Citizens programme under Action 2 Measure 2.2. The project started off from the need of improving project planning skills among local authorities interested in developing effective thematic networks projects (Measure 1.2 of the EFC Programme). The training was open to representatives of 35 municipalities from 5 countries, delivering specific knowledge and competencies to the participants and at the same time producing Thematic Networks Projects at the end of the process. The training was unfolded through 3 thematic seminars each corresponding to one phase of the project cycle (indicative programming, identification, formulation).


  1. to enhance the skills of civil servants to meet the more complex and demanding challenges in terms of strategic planning with the partners;
  2. to provide the participating municipalities with a common methodology for planning high quality projects ensuring consistency between objectives foreseen and final results;
  3. to create a platform for networking in order to further develop the exchange and contacts at multiple institutional levels.


Thanks to the sequential approach to the planning phase of the PCM and the activities held at local level in between each seminar, the participants had more possibilities to create and develop sustainable networks that led to the submission of 5 NTT projects on the 1st September 2012, one project per each PLANET work group. On December 3rd the results of the selection were published by EACEA and three of the five projects were approved.
