Landward Research Ltd has just completed a project to develop e-learning case studies as Technical Assistance to OCTA, the Association of Overseas Countries and Territories of the European Union. This has involved developing e-learning materials to support Regional and Territorial Authorising Officers in the 22 OCTA member territories (all of which are dependent Territories which have special relationships with an EU member state) in the process of preparing applications for EDF (European Development Fund) support.
