A joint event with the EGTC Platform and an Award for the EGTC!

The CECICN workshop, complementary to the Committee of the Regions EGTC Platform workshop “The European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation: Cross-border players in the Single Market”, was followed by a joint event attended by a hundred persons.
The Committee of the Regions launched at this occasion the Award “Building Europe across Borders” for the EGTC, to give visibility to the EGTC as an instrument for fostering economic growth and especially for implementing the Europe 2020 strategy. This informal interaction event was also an opportunity to continue the discussions started in the two workshops. The CECICN presented its network and its activities around the specialisations of its member networks.
