We celebrate European Cooperation Day with our Annual Event 2017

Tuesday 03 October 2017

Universities, local authorities, SMEs and charities have come together this September to celebrate European Cooperation Day and find out more about potential funding opportunities at our Annual Event 2017 in Saint-Malo, France.

Over 150 people from both sides of the Channel attended the event where they heard presentations from some of our approved projects and learnt about the unique funding opportunities offered by the Programme.

Commenting on the day Programme Manager Carolyn Reid said: “European Cooperation Day is a great way to showcase the benefits of cross-border cooperation. The Channel itself offers valuable opportunities for businesses and residents living in its proximity and its sustainable development depends on successful management of the challenges arising from natural risks and human activities.

“We are very proud of our current projects which will have a real impact on the lives of thousands of residents in the Channel area and we look forward to developing more projects in 2018.”

European Cooperation Day takes place in September every year to celebrate how cooperation across borders has helped improved the lives of thousands of EU citizens in areas such as transport, health and employment.
