03/03/2015: Annual Meeting of the EGTC Platform :


On Tuesday, 3 March 2015, 110 stakeholders from all parts of Europe attended the annual meeting of the EGTC Platform of the Committee of the Regions in Brussels. Moderated by Raffaele Cantaneo, chair of the AdR COTER commission, experts discussed the topic of the legal instrument EGTC (European Grouping on Territorial Cooperation) in the scope of employment issues. 

The Association of European Border REgions (AEBR) was presented by  eter Hansen (Region Sønderjylland-Schleswig) and  Patrice Harster (Eurodistrict Pamina). The well accepted event led to new approaches. It was emphasised that the EGTC is still relatively unkown. Jens Gabbe, Chair of the AEBR Advisory Committee, contributed several facts to the discussion to eluciate the border regions' point of view in this regard.
