What is the aim of the launch seminar?

The launch seminar was organised to kick start the Interreg Sudoe Programme for the period 2014-2020, to provide information about the first call and to allow the participants to contact transnational partners. The dates coincided with the opening of the first call for proposals, from the 21st of September to the 6th of November 2015. This gave the participants some time to become familiar with the documents (application form, first call’s announcement available in Spanish, French and Portuguese, Sudoe programme managementfor project development and management, Cooperation Programme, etc.) prior to attending the seminar.

This one-and-a-half days event (7th of October afternoon and 8th of October all day), scheduled a half-day networking session. The members of the Joint Secretariat and National Authorities were also available to clarify the doubts and to reply to participants’ questions.

The Launch Seminar was organised with the support of the Exhibition and Conference Centre and the Santander City Council.
