(22 April 2014) – The European Commission organises an “INTERREG IVC Thematic Capitalisation Event” on 22 May in Brussels.
Over the last seven years, the INTERREG IVC programme has been enabling public institutions all over Europe – over 2000 in total – to ‘learn through cooperation’ across 204 different interregional projects aimed at improving regional policies. For two years, a team of thematic experts have been analysing, benchmarking, and capitalising on the wealth of knowledge generated by projects working on similar regional development issues.
This one-day event will showcase policy recommendations and lessons learnt resulting from the analysis of the projects. Thematic specialists and practitioners will present the knowledge acquired through interregional cooperation and discuss the latest policy trends and common challenges identified in European regions. It is an opportunity to meet good practice owners and policymakers from all governance levels and learn about innovative solutions that could be useful and easily transferable to your region.
Admission to the event is free of charge. The organisers will cover the expenses for catering. All other expenses will have to be covered by the participants. This event welcomes policymakers and practitioners from all over Europe working in any of the 12 topics. Whether you work for a local municipality, regional authority or national ministry; regional agency or European association…as long as you are involved in the policy process, you are welcome to come and share your experiences and leave with good practices you might like to try at home.
