FSR proposal

Renewed proposal on staff courses (training or workshops)

from Torino (SG-comments and suggestions): 4 years

Programme, once a year 2 days training

Proposal ((with regard to the current state of play):

a) take up preparation of a pilot (preferably with FSR) aiming both at staff and PTA’s-management, with a specific focus to European and transport Regulations, policies (‘acquis communautaire’

b) EMTA can gear with renowned scholars & training methods of other organisazations( (check on UITP, Erasmus Univ. Rotterdam, Politecnica Torino) to acquire proper level of knowledge, in an economic and didacticly viable manner.

Next step: contact EUR, Torino and FSR (prof. M. Finger) on final concept programma. Start launch pilot: Autumn 2013 ?

Please give us some comments and experiences.
