This event gathered the various EC DGs that have been supporting the thematic S3 platforms and their partnerships (DGs REGIO, GROW, RTD, AGRI, ENER and JRC), offering an occasion to further build the community of the TSSPs.
The first session provided interesting insights regarding interregional cooperation and some updates for the next programming period regarding policies of interest to the three thematic platforms.
The second part of the event was dedicated specifically to the partnerships’ progress, lessons learnt and opportunities, also with time for questions on any topic of interest to the partnerships themselves.
This meeting gathered more than 170 persons from the EC services and from all the 35 Interregional Partnerships established under the three S3 thematic platforms.
