Invitation

European Cooperation Day will be celebrated across Europe and in neighboring countries for the first time ever on 21st September 2012. With 75 European Territorial Cooperation programmes on board, more than 100 local events will take place all over Europe during the week of 17th --- 23rd September. The aim of the campaign, which carries the slogan ‘‘Sharing borders, growing closer,’’ is to celebrate the achievements of cooperation between European regions and countries. Since the beginning of the 1990s, more than 20,000 projects, co-funded by the EU, have contributed to improving the lives of European citizens across borders, from creating jobs to protecting the environment to improving health care services, transport and energy.

Međimurje County boasts the highest number of implemented CBC projects in Croatia due to its favorable geographic position at the border with two EU countries and proactive stakeholders from public and private sectors. In order to further promote territorial cooperation with our neighboring countries and present some of the results achieved so far, ongoing initiatives and plans for the future Technology Innovation Centre Međimurje, Regional Development Agency Međimurje REDEA, Međimurje University of Applied Sciences, Međimurske vode and Međimurje County with the support of the Joint Technical Secretariat of Hungary-Croatia IPA Cross-border Co-operation Programme kindly invite you to participate at the
