On 25 September 2019, at the committees’ plenaries in Podcetrtek in Slovenia, an information desk (stand) was organised to present and disseminate the Together 4 Cohesion project activities.
In particular, participants had the opportunity to exchange insights about EU cohesion and structural funds from their point of view. Participants received a showcase on how to use the project website, how to handle the online database of good practices on communication campaigns and how to contribute to the so-called “European cohesion calendar of local events”. Flagship regions Trentino (IT), Varazdin (CRO), Catalunya (ES) and Timis (RO) had the opportunity to meet each other and to discuss and clarify aspects linked to the organisation and implementation of their corresponding regional events and activities.
Participants attending the plenaries approached the information desk to learn more about the upcoming project opportunities. Insights on funding synergies between both EU and regional levels, enhancement of the upcoming local events, networking opportunities, better visibility and positioning for the region and Marketing-related issues linked to the project dissemination were touched upon between the project representative and the attendees interested.
Particular interest was given to the planning of the training workshops across the regions since they will provide advice and guidance on the use and communication of EU cohesion policy and structural funds. The workshops are intended to bring together regional civil servants, NGOs, entrepreneurs, public authorities, private companies and media media partners. Actually … how the EU cohesion funds have had and are having a positive impact on citizens’ life and therefore contribute to a better quality life for people established in the regions!
The “European cohesion calendar of local events” is still open so we encourage you to come up with ideas and proposals so as to include yours in our calendar and give a boost to your event at European level! It might draw the attention of European institutions to your regional topical needs and priorities!
Any suggestions as regards an event/activity planned or to be planned in your region somehow linked to EU cohesion and funding issues? Please contact:
