#cooperationiscentral: Why central Europe needs cooperation more than ever

9 October 2018 |European Week of Regions and Cities

The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is an annual Brussels-based event in which officials from regional and urban administrations, as well as experts and academics, exchange good practices and know-how in the field of regional and urban development.

In this half-hour session, our speaker will talk about the need for transnational cooperation in central Europe. When solidarity is fading and calls for lower integration are growing, we believe #cooperationiscentral. Regions and cities are more efficient and more competitive when they work together beyond borders. Citizens and companies profit from new and better services. 

Based on evidence from a new impact study you will hear why Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE is a bulwark of cooperation at the heart of Europe. Concrete stories will illustrate what our speaker has to say.

Join the talk and share with us on social media why #cooperationiscentral for you.
