The 2nd Centres of Excellence Steering Committee meeting for Europe and CIS Region is held in Trieste, Italy from 19-20 November 2019. The meeting is organized by ITU and hosted by the CoE ICTP, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the Steering Committee meeting for the Centers of Excellence for the CIS region.
This is the second Steering Committee Meeting of the new CoE network cycle which started in January 2019 and will last until December 2022. The main objective of the Steering Committees is to govern and provide oversight to the CoE network functioning and operations. The meeting will provide CoEs the opportunity to present and discuss their activities, exchange experience, learn from each other and strengthen collaboration.
A key outcome of the meeting will be the agreed training catalogue for the CoE network in the region for the upcoming year. With the aim of creating synergies among the CoE networks in Europe and CIS region, the second meeting of the respective Steering Committees will be held.
According to the Governance structure outlined in the document “Operational Processes and Procedures for the CoE Network 2018" (available on the ITU Academy website), Steering Committees are composed of the Centers of Excellence, Member States hosting a CoE and ITU, who are expected to attend the meetings. Other participants from the broader ITU membership are welcome to attend as observers.
