The PERFECT partners have published their action plans to be implemented in Phase 2 of the project, 2020-21, acting as a template for the work programme for 2020-21. These documents provide details on how lessons from PERFECT will be implemented to improve each partner’s policy instrument. The action plans include, unsurprisingly, ‘actions’ to be undertaken, and have been prepared and developed during Phase 1 of the project, based on experience shared among the partners.

Exchanges of knowledge, learning from partner meetings, study visits, the use of the PERFECT project MAGIC Matrix and the Interreg EU Good Practice database (among other things) have been central in the development of partners’ action plans and will be crucial in the implementation in phase 2 of the project.

The action plans have now all been finished, validated by the Interreg Europe Joint Secretariat, and endorsed by the partner organisations – a positive result showing the hard work that all partners have put into writing their action plans.

Below is a brief outline of each partner Action Plan and a link to access the complete document
