Pool of Experts
The first stage of the project established a Pool of Experts in the field of cultural policy and governance. This pool was constituted through a call for experts from which 30 experts were chosen for the diversity of their expertise, experience and knowledge of the culture sector in developing countries.
The beneficiary countries whose mission application were selected by the Steering Committee were then able to choose experts from this pool to carry out the technical assistance mission. These experts have since been working in direct collaboration with the public authorities, contributing their valuable experience and know-how.
These experts undertook a joint training session in order to establish a common working methodology and to attune their skills, directed by Patricio Jeretic, a leading and experienced international expert in cultural policies, capacity-building and in the development of the culture sectors in developing countries.
For the duration of the project, the specialists of the pool of experts are connected through a private online network, through which they are able to share both positive and negative experiences, as well as enquire on particular difficulties or specificities related to their technical assistance missions.
The experts are nationals of countries having ratified the 2005 Convention. Their profiles are available for consultation.
