SEASON'S GREETINGS FROM THE SEE JTS!

The SEE Joint Technical Secretariat and the Managing Authority would like to thank to all of you who have participated in one way or another in the SEE Programme during this year. 2012 has been a year full of activities with new projects and events, successful results produced by projects from the 1st call which have already concluded their activities and the beginning of the debates about the next programing period and the future of European Territorial Cooperation. The most important moments of this year for the SEE Programme have been collected in this issue of the newsletter.

Many more exciting challenges are waiting for the SEE Programme in 2013 and we would like to count on you again to face them, knowing that only through cooperation we will get our objectives.

We would like to take this occasion to wish all of our colleagues, partners, beneficiaries and potential beneficiaries and anyone interested in the SEE Programme the very best for the Holiday Season and a Happy New Year, with plenty of cooperation opportunities!
