View of WroclawThe 2007-2013 programming period of EU funds draws to its end, so it is time for countries to prepare for the future. In that light, the Polish Ministry of Regional Development invites all interested parties to discuss the European Territorial Cooperation (This is the EU Regional policy’s third pillar of the programming period 2007-2013 and succeeds the Interreg III Community Initiative. With the present programming ...) programmes at a conference in Wroclaw, Poland, on 25 October 2012.

European territorial cooperation (ETC) is an important and efficient instrument of regional development. Many projects, supported by the ETC programmes 2007-2013, contribute to improvements in the participating regions in such areas like transport and innovation, air quality and energy efficiency.
