UMBRELLA- Boosting cross-border cooperation capacities of small actors in the South Baltic Sea
2.12.2020 (on-line) 10.00 – 15.00 CE
Dear Umbrella’s beneficiary,
On behalf of the Association of Polish Communes Euroregion Baltic as Lead Partner of Umbrella Project and behalf of the whole project partnership,
We want to invite you to our final conference.
Three years have passed since Umbrella was approved by INTERREG South Baltic Programme and launched by the partnership.
This project was needed since research showed that the South Baltic Programme was still poorly available to small organizations because of insufficient institutional and financial capacities, communication barriers, lack of English language skills, lack of competencies and capacities for project development and implementation. What observed in the frame of the South Baltic Programme could be generalized also for other European grants and other local cross-border cooperation opportunities in the South Baltic Sea area.
The overall objective of the project was to initiate a process of the capacity building involving small municipalities, NGOs and other local/ regional organizations to transfer the knowledge and capacities and to include them in the current cross-border cooperation networks.
Today we can finally state that we’ve achieved over expected results and we would like to share them with you.
On 2nd December 2020, we invite all Umbrella partners and stakeholders, small and local South Baltic beneficiaries to join us and celebrate the final project event.
We will present our project events & activities. But as promised, Umbrella was only the first step for something bigger, and we would like to anticipate that we will have an Umbrella 2.0 in 2021.
Therefore, to prepare for the next year, you can expect also:
a solid portion of knowledge on EUSBSR and SDGs – how to align them better with your daily work and start new cross-border cooperation activities;
- Future of the interregional cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region
- Plans for the EU’s MFF 2021-27
- Hot topics for cross-border cooperation
- Inside information about the end of the Interreg South Baltic Programme.
We will also organize an interactive session where you can give your input on the future Programme perspective & proposed objectives!
The event will be held online using the platform: ZOOM Webinar
