#EURegionsWeek - Programme Cooperation in the Arctic

Date Location Organiser
14 Oct 2020 Online Arctic Cooperation

How to cooperate across programmes: experience from the Interreg-ENI CBC Arctic collaboration.

A Q&A session focused on how to achieve cross-programme collaboration between the Interreg and ENI-CBC programmes, and how to benefit from synergies. It is not self-evident that programmes can work together without a formal strategy. We would like to explain how to achieve this kind of "soft cooperation" and how it can be integrated into the programming process. The target audience is other programme cooperation bodies, as well as colleagues in DG REGIO working with Interreg and ENI-CBC.
