One of the aims of SAME is to support Member and Candidate organisations. There are two main concepts which we use to strengthen the organisation: Best Practice Exchange and Cross Border Meetings.

Best Practice Exchange

Best practice exchange refers to the experiences different organisations have. On the on hand organisations can exchange knowledge and experiences on our events – like the annual Summer Academy – but also through the exsistance of the SAME-network get in touch with each other and exchange experiences and their expertise in other ways.

Cross Border Meetings

On a Cross Border Meeting, two or more organisations meet each other to talk about different challenges they face and to find solutions for their problems together. Participants exchange experiences and the organisations get to know each other better. They get the opportunity to discuss other ways to collaborate further or can start working on projects. The organisations create their own agenda and content.
