European Cooperation Day Webinar

Venue: Online

What does European cooperation look like in 2020? How are current challenges such as Covid-19 and Brexit affecting the EU institutions and instruments, including Interreg programmes?

To reflect on these questions and to celebrate the European Cooperation Day, the Joint Secretariat will host a webinar "European Cooperation in a Changing World: Covid-19, Brexit and Climate Change", targeted at university students. 

The webinar will take place on 25 September, 10-11 am. Although the webinar is aimed at university students, anyone interested is welcome to attend.

In the webinar, you get an opportunity to learn about European transnational cooperation and take a peek behind the scenes of the European Parliament and Interreg programmes and projects. You will also get a chance to ask questions of the speakers.
