PEN - The Professional Euro-Mediterranean Network
PEN is the Professional Euro-Mediterranean Network that involves partners, associates as well as other local stakeholders from the partner regions in learning exchanges.

Through virtual bi-monthly meetings the PEN will exchange their expertise and information on Local Sustainable Economic Development as a strategy for strengthening economic clusters and alleviating poverty in peripheral areas.

Each Project Partner brings their unique added value to the PEN meetings.

The PEN output will be a synthesis of the case studies presented and some indications to be collected on the final project paper to be further be a base for policy actions: policy papers and recommendations.
