Interreg Euregio Meuse-Rhine had to move their "2021-2027 Working Together, across borders" conference from Gouvernement aan de Maas in #Maastricht to Mecc Maastricht yesterday due to the high number of registrations for the event. Expertly moderated by Simone van Trier, participants from all over the #EuregioMeuseRhine were given more insight into the funding potential and future plans for Interreg VI. Caroline Glaude (#EMRaDi) and Julia Quitmann (#EMRConnect), two current Interreg funding recipients, shared their knowledge, experience and advice for the application, duration and completion of Interreg projects. The participants were then separated into working groups where feedback on Interreg policy and administration was discussed as well as each individual's ambitions for the EMR for the next few years. Necessity for clarity, collaboration, mobility, connectivity, digitalisation and transparency across Interreg and across the Euregio were points raised during the breakout sessions. Closing remarks were given by Andy Dritty, Regional Minister of the Provincie Limburg. The event was held in English, highlighting the importance of what we here at Meuse-Rhine Gazette believe to be the common medium of communication enabling us all to make stronger connections and expand our collective knowledge – pushing us all toward a greater future – together.
