Transport week 2018

Cross border cooperation: how to improve and finance innovative transport practices

At this event will be presented Interreg projects’ best practices and solutions in transport technologies, services and investments make a change across border  and also promoted Interreg funding opportunities in the transport sector

Presentations by Programme representatives showing results of implemented projects and how Interreg makes a difference, followed by short information about each Programme and available funding. Approx. 10-12 minutes each.

Panel discussion on questions concerning capitalisation and added value:

Why should the business sector be interested in Interreg? Why Interreg projects that make a difference outside the region are still sending back value to the region of origin ? Where Interreg can still find its niche? How can cooperation with other funding initiatives be developed?
