In the ever-changing waters of EU programme management, a recurring issue is how to transfer and keep knowledge. The European University Foundation and institutions in Norway and Portugal are exploring strategies to mitigate staff turnover and to master knowledge management. In this session, we invite you to debate how to better train and retain staff members. The outcome will feed into solutions and guidelines that will allow institutions to improve the quality of their programme environments.
