"The unique experience of participating, learning and interacting with a diverse team will be cherished for lifetime. I believe, being one of 15 participants from more than 10 countries brought the added value of multi-cultural prospects in to development. I learned that it is possible to come together with different backgrounds, languages and talk development, agree on strategies and learn from what works best on different economic territories. This summer academy has been one of the best ever I have participated and looking forward to it next year as well."

"Mesopartner Summer Academy is a 5-days event in Berlin organized by a group of brilliant lecturers (and practitioners) from Mesopartner, which also means from all over the world. Topics change on yearly basis, but some of main approaches stay every year, like Systemic Competitiveness, Complexity or stress on meso level/supporting organizations in local economic development. Besides cutting edge knowledge and tools for practitioners on economy-related matters, it’s also an example how such an event should be organized and moderated: A lot of knowledge shared, using good moderation and lecturing tools, in a great environment with just right amount of sightseeing and relaxation moments." Read a blog report on Summer Academy 2018
