'Building cross-border cooperation'
ITEM has seen many cross-border projects in which cooperation, solidarity and support contribute to the well-being of a border region and have even literally saved lives (e.g. EMRIC and PREpare). This type of project needs the support of the authorities concerned, a good structure, well-developed knowledge platforms to work and the necessary legal or administrative instruments to facilitate the operation of these cooperation projects.
The aim of this second ITEM conference day is to contribute to this and to stimulate cross-border cooperation and mobility by bringing together parties from the fields of academia, practice and policy, by sharing cross-border projects and, above all, by working together on a knowledge platform for cross-border cooperation in the field of knowledge building and knowledge disclosure.
ITEM is happy to celebrate this anniversary edition (5th annual conference) together with you and, in cooperation with the province of Overijssel, has put together a varied programme.
We look forward to seeing you in Enschede in November!
