ICA Event in Valencia

DevStat is pleased to announce the organization of next ICA Event in Valencia (24-27 April 2018).

As a co-host and member of the Alliance from June 2015, we are more than happy of having the opportunity of receiving our colleagues to gather for 3 days of Cooperation and Networking.

ICA, the International Consulting Alliance (www.icaworld.net), is a network of like-minded, independent and reliable top quality partners working in the development cooperation field, committed to sharing experiences and good practices. ICA aims at bringing together the best technical and local organisations, surrounded by the best international and local experts.

The Alliance currently has already 65 Member organisations. Approximately half of the members are local organisations based in the beneficiary countries where the donor-funded projects take place, and half are technical partners, specialists in their respective technical area. Member of ICA are both profit and not-for-profit organisations, as well as (semi-) public organisations.

With DevStat based in Valencia, the city has therefore become the location of this international event which is to take place from 24-27 April 2018. With around 80-100 expected participants from 50-60 local and technical development aid consulting organisations, coming from more than 40 countries worldwide, this networking conference will be a unique opportunity for the City of Valencia and the Valencian Community to present itself to a large international audience.

Looking for the opportunity of meeting you.

Open Discussion – Lecture on the European Statistical System in the Kyiv School of Economics

On 22.01.2018, José Cervera, CEO of DevStat, was invited to deliver a lecture on the European Statistical System in the Kyiv School of Economics (Ukraine) (Link to http://www.kse.org.ua/en/about/kse-news/?newsid=2255).

Students and lecturers of the KSE and other institutions exchanged views with José about the requirements imposed by the “EU acquis” for Ukrainian official statistics, which are set in the Association Agreement of Ukraine with the EU, which entered in force on 01.09.2017. José has become familiar with Ukrainian statistics after serving since 2014 as expert in different projects to support regional development and decentralization in this country (LINK to https://public.tableau.com/profile/jose1107#!/vizhome/MonitoringRegionalDevelopmentUAv2_0/sheet0).
