#cooperationiscentral: Why central Europe needs cooperation more than ever

9 October 2018, The European Week of Regions and Cities

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

During this session, Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will discuss the future of 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 us and share why #cooperationiscentral for you.
