The next AEBR General Assembly 2017 and the Conference of European Border Regions will take place in Badajoz (Extremadura, ES) at the ES/PT border, on the occasion of the 750th Anniversary of the first Treaty of Badajoz, signed on 16th February 1267 between King Alfonso X of Castile and King Afonso III of Portugal establishing the border practically in the same demarcation as it currently has. There will be several cross-border activities, involving the partners in Portugal, so it will be a truly cross-border event, and also a series of pre-conference events during the whole week:

- On Monday 23rd October 2017, we will organise in Cáceres (Extredmadura), in collaboration with the Extremadura Agency for International Development (AEXCID), an event related to CBC in Latin America, in order to present the studies, projects and other initiatives implemented, promoted and participated by the AEBR since 2010.

- On Tuesday 24th October 2017, a Cross-Border School is planned in Cáceres as well, in collaboration with the University of Extremadura. This CB School is an initiative proposed by the Euroregion Rhein-Waal and the Province of Gelderland, with the collaboration of the Ragboud University (Nijmegen) and other AEBR partners. The idea is to organise this school with CBC experts and practitioners before every General Assembly and Annual Conference.
