According to the preliminary agenda distributed:

  • On the first day, there will be a presentation of best practices and an overview of insights from the latest monitoring reports and also the opportunities gathered through the S3 CoP webpage. To continue, the presentation of the services delivered by the S3 CoP: governance; mapping; funding, finance and investment; and demonstration. Later on, dedicated breakout sessions on experiences per each service.
  • The second day will continue with the presentation and breakout sessions of the services training & capacity building; (re)scoping; and smart partnering. The final session will be dedicated to the dedicated platform meetings, including the latest relevant policy developments and an open discussion on opportunities and challenges.

This meeting will focus on the service delivery that has taken place in the past months and will entail specific breakout sessions to exchange experiences per service delivery. The breakout sessions on the S3 CoP services are organised for those TSSPs that have received a concrete service and those ones interested in receiving it.
