• SAVE THE DATE : European Week of Regions and Cities 2023

    As part of the 21st European Week of Regions and Cities, coordinated by the European Committee of the Regions and DG REGIO, the Euro-Institut/TEIN and its partners are organising a workshop on « Preventing instead of breaking barriers – How to minimise the risk of emerging obstacles to cross-border cooperation«  on Thursday 12 October 2023 from 09:30 to 10:30 in Brussels.

    How to prevent obstacles to cross-border cooperation (CBC)? Three examples will answer this question: – CB training and mediation – CB impact assessment and the debate on special instruments for deviation from legislation in the case of CB projects – the CBenACT project embedding CBC as a core action within organisations and their stakeholders and not as a « secondary » activity. The opportunities for preventing obstacles as well as its limits and challenges will be discussed.

    The speakers are:

    • Anthony SOARES, Director, Centre for Cross Border Studies
    • Anne THEVENET, Deputy director, Euro-Institut, Institute for Cross-Border Cooperation / Transfrontier Euro-Institut Network
    • Pim MERTENS, Representative, Expertise centre ITEM
