The Interreg Annual Meeting 2018 will take place from 18 to 19 June in Brussels and is organized by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy.
In accordance with Article 51 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013, the meeting is one of the annual opportunities to review programme implementation. It also aims to discuss with the Managing Authorities and the Joint Secretariats of all the Interreg programmes the most topical issues related to implementation.
This year, the meeting takes place right after the European Commission has presented its post 2020 proposals for Interreg. The meeting agenda has been designed to allow discussions on the future legal framework of Interreg programmes.
The meeting will start in the afternoon of 18 June. The opening plenary session will highlight the state of play of implementation of Interreg programmes and will be followed by three parallel workshops related to current implementation.
The morning session of 19 June will be the opportunity to discuss the post-2020 proposals. This will be followed by a choice of visits among three different options in Brussels, Tournai and Liège.
All stakeholders are kindly invited to participate actively both as workshop speakers and during the Q&A session.
