Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: ISES statutory aims are the promotion of Europe in Italy and the support to public bodies, business and third sectors to access EU funding by means of a continuous side by side work throughout the bureaucratic, administrative and management path respecting the rules set by the European Commission.
The activity of ISES represents the opportunity to develop a functional community culture to an integrated and participatory management of processes of change, which stimulates, in the actors involved, a significant willingness to invest in the projects planning.
The European projects design is in fact an area separate from the general projects design, and finds its basis in the progressive emergence of the “participatory planning”, a planning process that includes the activation of mixed partnerships as a pre-condition to produce a significant impact on reality.
