#cooperationiscentral for European regions and cities

We believe that #cooperationiscentral to make regions and cities more attractive and we will be part of the #EURegionsWeek! Our Idea Lab workshops will be discussing cooperation achievements and challenging the debate on the  future Interreg cooperation in our programme area as well as on the broader European scale.

This year, the European regions, cities and their stakeholders are asking themselves about what kind of cooperation and in which areas is needed. We, at CENTRAL EUROPE have asked experts to analyse territorial challenges, needs and potentials of transnational cooperation in this functional area. In our Idea lab session, practitioners and policy makers will share their views and ideas on future orientation of the programme.

Stay tuned for the agenda and more details at the EURegionsWeek website.
