Creativity and Innovation for Public Administration

2nd Workshop | Friday, 14th June 2013


Lecture Hall 5 | Ground Floor

Europastraße 4 | 9500 Villach




Different place, same faces!
At the request of partners and project participants, the Villach meeting will consist of work and workshops. The objective is to translate the knowledge and competences of the training days into the daily practice of your work and your chosen creative challenge. So, no showcasing of results as yet – that will come later! – but more training and exchange.

The beer coaster comments collected at Pasian di Prato clearly produced three areas of further learning needs:

  • How to get started , put learnings and insight into practice
  • How to improve internal and external meetings in practice
  • How to overcome resistance in the organisation

If you look at the programme with this input in mind, you will see few surprises.


  • Thanks to all those participants who have submitted their challenges! They are very diverse and offer excellent opportunities to bring the competences of the project to life. Those of you who are still thinking about their challenge, please now kick into action (idea + action = result) and submit the form (download at www.next4pa.eu). Don’t wait. What you have thought out so far will definitely be good enough to get the experience. After all, you can’t decide that an idea will be a nearling!
  • Formulate the questions you have about your challenge and bring them along. Be specific!
  • Also prepare any meeting-related questions and bring along an example of a meeting you would like to conduct differently in order to make it more effective.
  • Check Mike’s presentation on Meeting Design which is in Microcosmi.
  • Remember the blue idea/first little action you decided on the very last moment of our last training day? We would like to hear the status of these ideas and how you feel about them.
