Webinar on Europlanning

A new series of free webinars on a wide range of topics, curated by IUSE in partnership with European Commission and in collaboration with our Guide to Europlanning

The webinars feature varied and high-level participation, allowing for a combination of different kinds of insights and reflections:

  • Representatives from EU institutions, who will offer insights and updates on various issues directly from the heart of the European Union;
  • Representatives of national and local institutions, who will bring ideas and points of view related to the projects and priorities most felt in Italy;
  • Representatives of Third Sector bodies, universities and research and competence centers, who will animate the round table with examples, reflections and success stories.


The webinar schedule

The webinars will follow this schedule and address these themes:

National Resilience Plan (PNRR), culture and third sector:

  • June 15: Next Generation EU and culture
  • June 22: PNRR and the third sector.

Structural funds, strategies and opportunities for the nonprofit sector:

  • July 6: A Smarter Europe
  • July 13: A Greener Europe
  • July 20: A more connected Europe
  • Sept. 7: A more social Europe
  • Sept. 14: A Closer Europe


The webinars curated by University Institute for European Studies (IUSE) are thus a further enrichment of the content of the Guide to Europlanning aimed at improving skills for approaching the world of European funds.

June’s appointments: PNRR, culture and third sector

The first two webinars, on June 15 and June 22, are dedicated to one of the most topical issues at this time, the PNRR and the Recovery Fund, associated with the cultural sector and the Third Sector.

The National Resilience Plan represents an important opportunity for Italy. The main measures are aimed at public entities and some managing entities. The purpose of the webinars is to give operational guidance for specific calls and suggest innovative approaches for public-private partnerships in order to boost the grounding of NRP funds for the cultural and third sector, including in combination with other European funding schemes.
