INTERREG EUROPE: what to expect from the launch event
Over 1 500 participants registered for the INTERREG IVC/ INTERREG EUROPE interregional cooperation forum, which takes place in Bologna on 2 and 3 December. The forum will present the achievements of the INTERREG IVC programme and launch the new interregional cooperation programme INTERREG EUROPE.
The inspiring two-day event will be full of learning and networking for organisations coming from 30 European countries. Managing authorities of Structural Funds programmes and other public authorities, development agencies, research institutes, INTERREG IVC project partners and stakeholders, representatives from EU institutions and many others will take part. Many will come on the spot or join the event through web-streaming.
The first day will showcase the achievements of INTERREG IVC and provide a deeper insight into the 4 selected themes of INTERREG EUROPE. Participants in 4 thematic workshops will start discussing their project ideas on:
- research and innovation,
- competitiveness of SMEs,
- low-carbon economy
- environment and resource efficiency.
On the second day, the participants will further discover the new features of the programme. They will discuss what applicants should pay attention to when developing a project at sessions run by the Joint Secretariat.
Apart from that, the event will give the participants the possibility:
- to get inspired and learn from the experience of INTERREG IVC projects
- to get in contact with hundreds of like-minded people, share project ideas with them and start building potential partnerships
#europecooperates is the hashtag to use for the event to follow and join the debate, even when not present on the spot.
