Followed the discussion about all objections, particularly on accreditation and IPR procedures. Concerning accreditation of NaRA it was discussed that all courses will be put in the repository only upon accreditation, and for all other content to be put in NaRA (besides courses) will be decided by the Advisory board of the repository. NaRA established, with the Board and recognized by Ministries (, Agriculture) is in a way above accreditation (Vesna Poleksić, UB; Danijela Šćepanović, ME). Also courses authors are University professors and their programs and courses are accredited already (Steve Quarrie, BSN). This should be a guaranty that professors are offering quality courses. Pasquale Pazienza, UF discussed about University of Foggia following ENQA procedures for accreditation. Franc Bavec, UM asked who will be the owner of materials placed in NaRA, who will be entitled to use it and under which conditions? Predrag Pudja UB, was of the same mind as Prof. Bavec and agreed on the importance of copyright and IPR procedures. He also underlined the importance of NaRA future status, after CaSA lifetime, and the importance of the actions we as a project have to accomplish. Presentation of EU partner institutions and their good practices in agricultural education: HE, secondary schools and advisory services Prof. Franc Bavec, University of Maribor presented Knowledge transfer in organic farming: Slovenian view with links to international context. Nicola Faccilongo, University of Foggia presented Multifunctional agriculture: a massive open online course (e-mooc) from UNIFG After presentations of EU partners followed a discussion and recommendations for the SC - decisions concerning acceptance of good practices and their further incorporation in Serbian agricultural education. Questions and answers about education for organic agriculture in Slovenia, status of this sector in Slovenia, prices, trading margins that affect prices of organic products. Also about the cooperation in the triangle: University Maribor advisory services farmers concerning the support for small farmers. The importance of the multidisciplinary approach in agriculture for small farmers was stressed by Slovenian colleagues. They also gave an example of a support from German and Austrian colleagues for GMO free milk production in 1300 farms that started but was stopped by a food safety sector influenced by large milk producers. Questions and answers on MOOC elearning courses of the University of Foggia: about the course content, funding, target groups, students and their tasks towards MOOCs, video materials for practical demonstration. Document: presentation PPT prof Bavec, Faccilongo The end of the morning session was dedicated to the continuation of: Discussion of the feedback received from project officer: All the comments of the project officer were addressed and discussed. Actions and tasks distributions will be decided during the WS and SC meeting. Concerning further discussed with the Ministry it was proposed to act with the help of Danijela Šćepanović who will suggest persons at ME to be met. She stressed that the support will be obtained, but funding will be a problem. The idea must be well explained and elaborated. We have to demonstrate that the ides of a repository is unique and will be an important component of LLL in agriculture (B. Mladenović). S, Tanasković stressed that gap in education and training of agricultural inspectors and advisors could be filled with NaRA. It was also suggested (Snežana Tanasković) in order to obtain the support of the Ministry of Agriculture to prepare a document for the Ministry and contact representatives during the March Biotechnology meeting (20th International Symposium on Biotechnology, March 2015, UNIKG, Faculty of Agronomy). Poleksić (BU), Šćepanovič (ME), Tanasković (UNIKG), and Čolić (IPN) will be in charge.

Document: presentation PPT WP4 report on TNA (questionnaires on TNA) by Danijela Šćepanović (ME) She prsented the results of the TNA analysis for 2 groups: advisor and Agricultural Midle School, AMS teachers. Response rate and results were analysed with the assistance of IPN. Results were discussed. Following questions were underlined: To what extent TNA can be useful to training providers and to what complimented by other information sources? Is there a potential to further develop TNA as a service to NaRa users? Are there Skill gap assessments in Agriculture? Agricultural education policy? It was concluded that although TNA is helping but not imposing results can show the direction what are the topics that should be addressed, the importance of LLL, especially for AMS that compared to relatively adequate trainings offert to advisors, have an absolute lack of courses for knowledge refreshment. V. Poleksić, BU, gave an example addressed in a paper published as CaSA dissemination. D.
