The PULSER project aims to organize four sectoral training and working groups on how to support the reforms of Public Administration, manage the changes in public services and the work of public services personnel, and to exchange transnational good practices.
The sectoral information and working groups will generate an expert study, carried out in collaboration with the European Policy Centre (EPC), on the performance of public services and the role of public service personnel in Europe, highlighting also the social return on investment that they generate.
The four chosen sectors being:
Central government administration and finance as well as local and regional administration, representing personnel in all levels and sections of government, agencies and public bodies
Education and training, representing teachers and educators in primary, secondary and tertiary education as well as in VET and further professional training
Health services, representing hospital staff, nurses and physicians
Justice services, representing police personnel, prison wards and justice sector staff in all levels of the judicial systems
In a second phase, a European Symposium is planned to review the European programs under the new MFF for future skills, training and intra EU mobility for Public Administration personnel.
During the second part of the Symposium, significant data from the study will be discussed and presented a pan-European media campaign on the value of an efficient public administration (public services and public sector employees).
These tools shall raise awareness among policymakers and the society in general about the added value of well-staffed and hence performing public services to deliver the EPSRs.
The deliverables of PULSER project shall include:
4 sectoral training and working groups
1 study on PA role and PA personnel
1 EU symposium on public sector role and personnel performance and opportunities
