Last week, 20 CAF experts from Bulgaria visited Vienna for a study visit. Michael Kallinger, Ministry for Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sports and KDZ Managing Director Thomas Prorok accompanied the participants and presented CAF projects in Austria with cooperation partners. The role of the Ministry as CAF correspondent and CAF user was highlighted, and the CAF in the City of Vienna and in the Study Grant Authority was presented. Thomas Prorok introduced KDZ as the Austrian CAF centre and stressed the value of the international cooperation that CAF facilitates: "Learning from experiences of other countries is always fruitful. This is one of the leading benefits of CAF - the European Common Assessment Framework for better quality and governance in public administration. "
Many thanks to Michael Kallinger and the participants for the interesting exchange.
