Networking Trip to Brussels

The two executive directors of CRISP travelled to Brussels in order to present our work and to find some new partners.

Since a while we were planning to go to Brussels and to establish some new contacts within differ-ent EU-Agencies related to our work in the field of conflict transformation and crisis prevention. Already last year we contracted a liaison-officer, Tommaso Galli, who was preparing our trip to Brussels in advance. Thanks to Tommaso we had a very tight schedule and managed to have 15 meetings within two days. Besides the contacts inside the EU we also met other NGOs and donor-organizations.

All meetings and talks were very useful for further developing and expanding our activities. We are very happy about the constructive talks and promising pre-arrangements. Definitely CRISP is much more popular than before.

It was great to see how open the EU-institutions actually are and how seriously interested they are in our civil society activities (track-3) – we wished that spirit would be more widespread…we’ll keep working on it.
