Update on postponed events

18 March 2020 - Published by Lise Espersen

The coronavirus crisis is escalating day by day and new regulations for meetings and travel in our respective countries, and at a global level, are rapidly emerging. 

In light of this, the Secretariat would like to announce the postponement of the North Sea Conference as well as provide an update about a number of EU level events and activities which have also been affected. 

North Sea Conference

The coordinators of the North Sea Conference; the North Sea Commission, the Province of South Holland, the City of Rotterdam and the North Sea Region Programme have decided to postpone the event, which was scheduled to take place in Rotterdam 23-25 June. It is anticipated that the event will be rescheduled for the Autumn.

Please notes that our photo and video competitions remain open but the deadline for them will be extended to coincide with the new dates for the conference.

Many of the events that have been planned as part of the Interreg 30 years campaign have been cancelled or postponed.

  • European Maritime Days is postponed (new date unknown).
  • European Youth Event is postponed  (new date unknown).
  • European Green Week is under consideration.
