Local and regional authorities from 44 eligible countries1 are invited to apply as a mentee to the PROSPECT+ Capacity-Building Programme as of the 11th of January 2022 in one of these thematic areas:
PROSPECT+ seeks local or regional authorities that are interested in learning from an experienced peer-mentor on how to finance sustainable energy and climate project using innovative financing schemes.
The person participating as a mentee should be directly involved in the financing and implementation of local sustainable energy and climate project for which they are seeking the expertise of a mentor. This project should be part of a local or regional sustainable energy and climate action plan or similar and should be at least in the preparatory stage. The mentee should be able to liaise with other experts and political representatives within their organisation together with all elements of information related to the local project and to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and replication of the innovative financing scheme on the territory.
Mentees will have the opportunity to learn from other projects implemented in Europe and apply what they learned in their own context. Also, they will get tailor-made assistance adapted to their capacity-building objectives and needs, and confront ideas with peers, and finally share their experience and challenge their knowledge to come up with new solutions.
The added value of PROSPECT+ is threefold:
