The Eurometropolis Lille-Kortrijk-Tournai publishes its 2014-2020 strategy

The overall objective of the Eurometropolis strategy is to “proceed from the collective project to practical implementations”.

The overall objective of the Eurometropolis strategy is to “proceed from the collective project to practical implementations”.“Going beyond the pooled knowledge of the institutional participants and civil society and various achievements, the mobilisation of collective intelligence remains essential, both for designing the processes and realising joint projects in the field and for planning the future”1. The members of the Eurometropolis EGTC are focusing their collective action on the challenges for which their cooperation generates added value for both the residents of the Eurometropolis and the local actors: their 2014-2020 strategy is the result of a maturing process of their cooperation2, of their intention to build Europe in the field. Organised along three axes (socio-economic; mobility-accessibility; blue and green Eurometropolis), it provides a reference framework for the partners and actors in the territory, leading to coherent and integrated comprehensive cross-border action. Cross-border information for the citizens will be developed. The EGTC will implement the projects using the competencies and the resources of its members and partners as well as European co-funding.
