Wednesday, 20 April 2016

On April, 18th, the association of local development agent of the province of Castellón, called Adlypse, was received on Partenalia’s premises in Brussels. The purpose of the visit was to gain a better understanding of the activities of the entity presided by Javier Moliner and which defends the interests of county councils (and thus municipalities) towards European institutions and facilitates access to European funds for its member provinces.

The meeting was an opportunity for Partenalia to present the guiding lines of its activities for the months to come. One of the main new feature will be the momentum given to the Working Group led by Castellón and which will seek the maximum number of best practices from other provinces in terms of promoting rural tourism through the use of new technologies.

Moreover, Partenalia has offered its services to the local development agents working in different parts of the province in order to be informed with regards to the latest available European funds and to be given the possibility to attend training sessions on the main funding instruments dedicated to local projects.

Amongst the participants were the local development agent from various municipalities in the province of Castellón (Vinaròs, Benicarló, Forcall, Castellnovo, Oropesa del Mar, Zorita, Morella, La Todolella y Vallibona) as well as representatives from the University Jaume I and the Foundation/Pact for employment from Valencia. The President of the Association of Local Development Agents from Castellón, Mrs. Maria Segura, has expressed her satisfaction regarding the many opportunities for the Province which an association such as Partenalia brings about.
