Collaborative Partners View members
In addition to the research and development component of this project, Eurosupport 6 also maintains the already existing Eurosupport network on SRH and HIV
. This network will constitute a forum for collaborative partners to exchange information and expertise relating to SRH and HIV. Collaborative partners receive all project-related information (such as the Eurosupport newsletter). Collaborative partners will be invited to the final project’s dissemination meeting which will include a training workshop on working with the developed tools.
We are still looking for partners who are interested in either using these tools in their own setting or who have a capacity building function, i.e. training other service providers in SRH and HIV-related issues.
A collaborative partner does not have any obligations towards the project and therefore can not be remunerated. However, collaborative partners will substantially benefit from the network through the facilitation of mutual exchange of information and by gaining direct access to all project related results. The participation on the training workshop will be free of charge for the collaborative partner.
