You can start networking the moment you enter the venue. On the ground floor, next to the registration desk, you will find message boards that are all yours to use - leave a note or your card, tell the other participants what you are looking for, introduce your project idea, or pass any other message which could be of interest for the other participants.
The presentations and the main plenary will take place on the ground floor. But we do encourage you to venture further and visit the first floor as well.
The first floor is all about networking - you will find tables available for mini-meetings, an Interreg Europe corner with representatives of the Joint Secretariat, opportunities to give feedback on the Policy Learning Platform (or the Interreg Europe website, if you have signed up for a card sorting session), as well as national points of contact and other country representatives from different countries.
Find partners or join projects! Present your project idea, network with people interested in similar topics, and join discussions to find potential partners and projects.
Check the networking schedule and join a group on the spot. Or suggest your own topic for discussion by booking a table and gather your own group to work on your idea.
There are six tables for up to eight people each available for 30-minute sessions throughout the afternoon in the networking area.
During the event you have an opportunity to meet people from the joint secretariat, ask questions and get answers on questions related to project development or the upcoming call.
If you have any questions on project development, your application or the programme, the Interreg Europe team will be there to help - just drop by the Interreg Europe corner for advice, information and answers.
Do you work on regional development policies? Did you know that the Policy Learning Platform offers a range of services allowing you to learn from others, online or offline, even outside a project?
This year, we are rolling out new online tools to help you, our community members, to interact with and learn from peers and thematic experts more easily. Maybe you would like us to develop discussion forums, instant chats, online events, document sharing…
Come talk with us and share your needs, wishes and ideas for new online services.
In addition to getting answers to your questions from the joint secretariat, you will also have a chance to talk to your national points of contact and other country representatives, who can give you valuable insights to ensure you are on the right track with your project preparations.
The country representatives are available to answer your questions or give you more information during the afternoon.
Countries represented include:
