CONNECT is a mechanism developed by PLATFORMA and VNG International. The mechanism facilitates short-term, demand-driven knowledge transfers between local and regional governments in EU partner countries and local and regional governments in Europe. It works by linking a request for expertise from a local or regional government in a non-EU country to experience offered by a regional or municipal government in an European country by facilitating a short one-off exchange activity.

To prepare participating municipalities for this knowledge exchange activity, THA designed a online training course which guides the participants in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the activity. The course includes a readings, a quiz, videos and several interactive exercises. The project ran in 2018.
