ITEM Annual Conference 2021: Empowering border regions - more than ever?
<span style="color:#ef4c22"><center>“Lessons learned, opportunities and challenges of cross-border cooperation"</center></span>
The Corona pandemic has shown that attention to tackling obstacles is achieved not only by streamlining regulations, but also by recognizing a border identity. A joint strategy of the stakeholders involved and working together with partners on both sides of the border, each from their own background (practice, knowledge, governance), appears to be necessary to establish relevant casuistry, a shared and concrete agenda and a structural approach.
The ITEM Annual Conference 2021 discussed how border regions and Euroregions can play a role in this and which instruments can be used for this, with a substantive focus on the ‘new way’ of working (working from home) after COVID-19 and major developments in cross-border security and care.
The ITEM Annual Conference 2021 was hosted by the Province of Zeeland, and was broadcasted from the provincial building of Zeeland, 'De Abdij', in Middelburg.
