On 18-19 February 2014 Programme Operators for the area of justice in all countries – the Beneficiaries of the Norwegian funds met in Brussels, at the headquarters of the Financial Mechanism Office. The meeting was attended by Operators from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Romania and Poland as well as by the representatives of the Donor Programme Partner – the Norwegian National Courts Administration, the Council of Europe and the European Commission.
Participants discussed their experience in the implementation of programmes in individual countries. Representatives of the Beneficiaries had also an opportunity to learn more about the Donors’ expectations as to how to implement the tasks of the programme operators.
One of the main outcomes of the meeting was the possibility to establish direct contacts between the Beneficiary States of the Norwegian funds, which in the future may result in the development of joint projects to support the functioning of the judiciary.
