Enhancing Healthcare Cooperation in Cross-border Regions, European Commission Event, Bruxelles 4/12/2018



About the event

More than one in three Europeans live in a cross-border territory. Cooperation between health services, facilities, providers and authorities has the potential to transform proximity to a border from a common problem to a joint opportunity leading to better health outcomes, local innovation, jobs, and growth.
Setting up cooperation projects across borders is notoriously tricky. But it needn't be that way. This is why the European Commission is organising the Conference "Enhancing Healthcare Cooperation in Cross-border Regions" on 4 December 2018, to present the results of a pioneering mapping study of successful cooperation projects and its toolkit for practitioners interested in setting up cross-border cooperation themselves.

The conference is a prime opportunity to discuss new perspectives in cross-border healthcare and help shape future programming to tackle stubborn administrative, financial, legal, linguistic, demographic and cultural barriers to success. Delegates can discover how cross-cutting EU policies and pioneering efforts can make a tangible difference on the ground. Because when it comes to saving lives and caring for people in need, health always transcends territory. This is the spirit and working rationale behind the European Commission's support to territorial cooperation in border areas – the so-called INTERREG programmes – and other regional activities.

Cooperating for investment, investing in cooperation, Interact Event 28/11/2018

The possible link among the goals of Cohesion Policy and related instruments or policy frameworks is one of the most challenging tasks for programmes co-funded by European Structural and Investment Funds.
Thus article 96.3 (d) of Reg. (EU) No 1303/2013 is a concrete tool that allows cooperation activities in the 'Investment for growth and jobs goal (IGJ)' for all European regions.
In the framework of Interact activities for the follow-up and promotion of new tools for cooperation throughout ESI funds and instruments, also given the interest showed by a number of European regions, Macro-regional Strategies' stakeholders and practitioners wanting to implement a closer cooperation and exchange between the opportunities offered in the framework of Cohesion Policy, this event is aimed at pointing out what is the current situation for the use and implementation these tools and – as well – to identify future perspectives for the (simplified) use of new tools for cooperation and development, also in the framework of the EU Macro-regional strategies.

The EGTC GO collaborates in the panel discussion:

State of play, experiences, rationale and expectations for the (simplified) use of new tools for cooperation and development
