The event will provide the opportunity to share experience between projects supported by the European Structural Investment Funds and other EU programmes and policies in the areas of research, industrial policy, education and skills. It will enable project promoters to learn from experience in other regions and find cooperation partners across EU in areas such as energy, agri-food, industrial modernisation, cybersecurity, health, and the maritime industry. Interreg Europe’s Policy Learning Platform will be there to introduce the features and services of the platforms as well as to host a matchmaking café on various topics for those looking for new partners and good practices.
