Social economy network Portugal
The EQUAL national thematic network on Quality in the Third Sector was co-ordinated by Professor Alberto Melo of the University of the Algarve. Its aims were to promote support structures within the third sector and to work out recommendations for a framework for effective partnership between the public administration and the third sector. The network, which involved six EQUAL development partnerships, first met in April 2006 and its six member development partnerships took it in turn to host meetings. This allowed the members to get to know local projects as well as debating common issues.
In June 2007 the network organised the seminar Quality in the third sector in Castelo de Vide, with guest speakers from Spain and the UK.
