On the 9th and 10th of October 2019, the representatives of the National Institute of Administration (INA) participated in the International Multilateral Meeting, organised by the Institute for Public Administration in Prague, Czech Republic.
The main purpose of the event was to bring together representatives of institutions with responsibilities in the field of public administration training, to discuss modern projects and approaches used in the training process. There were 18 representatives from 11 European states (Ireland, Kosovo, Poland, Slovenia, Switzerland, Albania, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic).
Mr. Pavel NĂSTASE, President of INA, held the presentation with the theme: “Implementation of the blended training system at the National Institute of Administration” – analysis of the implementation of the blended training model in schools and public administration institutes at international level and case study on the implementation of this model at the INA level. At the same time, a comparative analysis was presented between the blended training model and the classical training model, with their advantages and disadvantages, based on the questionnaire developed by the European University Association (EUA). The questionnaire was adapted and applied at DISPA level (Network of Directors of Schools and Institutes of Public Administration).
Also, Mr. President emphasised that INA is open to opportunities for collaboration with similar schools and institutes of administration, discussing in this regard also the initiative of the Institute for Public Administration in Prague regarding the organisation of a summer school in 2020, a project funded from the Erasmus + program.
