Why interregional cooperation matters

Wed 10 April, 10:00 - 11:00, Ground floor

Europe is full of solutions. Sharing them and developing better policies through joint learning, exchange of experiences and cooperation delivers tangible results on the ground. Interregional cooperation enables actors across Europe to learn from each other and serves as an accelerator for regional development. Beyond immediate benefits in the region and for the local communities, cooperation also contributes to the economic, social and territorial cohesion of the EU territory. 

During the opening session of the fifth edition of 'Europe, let's cooperate!', keynote speakers will discuss the importance of Interreg Europe for the Cohesion Policy. Join us to take stock of the results and importance of interregional cooperation. The opening session, featuring both policy makers and practitioners, will cover issues such as: 

  • the role and importance of interregional cooperation
  • cooperation laying foundations and paving the way for regions to realise their full potential
  • impact of interregional cooperation
