At the Forum DTP Capitalisation working groups have also gathered stakeholders in 12 groups (in accordance with the 12 Capitalisation Poles of the DTP), which were moderated by the Pole leaders with the support of the related EUSDR Priority Area Coordinators. Participants gained an insight in the Poles’ activities and could discuss experiences and ideas; thus, this session was a unique opportunity for networking and for the thematic poles to meet relevant projects, programmes, initiatives and stakeholders which could be involved in their capitalisation activities in the future.
