How does a UNESCO Chair / UNITWIN Network function?
Role of a UNESCO Chairholder/ Network Coordinator
The performance of the project depends largely on the quality of the coordination function. He or she is responsible for the programming, organization, fund-raising and promotion of activities. Effective coordination will ensure better cross-border involvement in the project and ultimately improve its impact.
Activities undertaken in the framework of UNITWIN vary according to the objectives and available resources. They may include:
1.programme development in non-traditional areas at undergraduate and post graduate levels
2.exchange of lecturers
3.lectures on topics relevant to the field covered by the chair or network
6.workshops, seminars, national, regional and international meetings/conferences
Whatever the types and forms of activities, they should complement the relevant UNESCO programmes and actions approved by its Member States. Close cooperation with on-going UNESCO activities and programmes is of utmost importance.
