Thank you for your participation.
We are looking forward to seeing
you at the next SEE event!


You are cordially invited to attend the annual conference organized by the South East Europe Programme on 12 May 2011 in Sofia, Bulgaria.  

Under the title "A strategic approach towards cooperation in SEE area", the conference aims to be the key territorial cooperation event in South Eastern Europe.  This year's specific objectives are:

  •  To show the added value of the Programme and the achievements up to date.
  •  To create an (efficient) dialogue on the topic of macroregions and other strategic issues in the SEE area.
  •  To offer networking opportunities and a framework for the exchange of experience for the Programme stakeholders.
  •  To rouse project development in view of the fourth call for project proposals.
  • To stimulate innovative proposals for future strategic co-operation activities.

The conference will bring together up to 350 participants, including representatives of the European Commission, government officials and experts from the SEE countries, representatives of international organizations and academia, potential project developers.

This one day event will focus in its first part on the evolution of the Programme so far and its perspectives towards the fourth call for proposals, as well as on the strategic context in which the SEE Programme is active and the relevant issues such as the macro regional strategies and the new approaches towards the funding of the non-EU countries. In the second part the projects funded within the first call will have the opportunity to actively promote and showcase their achievements within the space reserved for their presentations and for the projects fair.
