A Greener North-West Europe on 20 May

Join us online to network & learn about our projects' impact, and the future Interreg NWE programme.

Project partners in NWE but also from other Interreg programmes, as well as decision-makers at EU, national, regional and local level are invited to register. All potential applicants in the future programme are also welcomed to participate.

Agenda - Thursday 20 May, 10:00-12:00 CET

1. Plenary session (30')

Opening by Niklas Nienass, Member of the European Parliament.

Panel discussion “From one programme to the next: achievements and perspectives”.

  • Mathieu Mori, Programme Director, Interreg North-West Europe
  • Térence Lecoq, EU Territorial Cooperation, Wallonie-Bruxelles International; Representing Belgium, Chair of the Interreg North-West Europe Programme
  • Anne Wetzel, Director of the Europe department for the Region Hauts-de-France, Managing Authority of the NWE Programme

2. Thematic breakout sessions (90')

Breakout sessions will showcase project results and give participants an opportunity to meet and network.

Participants are asked to register to one of the following sessions:

  • Citizen-driven energy transition
    Empowering the development of local communities where citizens play a major role, not only as consumers but also as part of wider groups in which they can advocate sustainable actions.

  • Green construction
    NWE projects strengthen the circular economy in the building sector, reducing the demand for primary raw materials. They find joint solutions to ensure upcycling and develop new sustainable materials.

  • Green hydrogen highway
    How EU funding has helped kickstart H2 projects and the role of European funds in the future of green hydrogen in public and private sectors.

  • Resource recovery
    Resource recovery is focused on the identification, recovery and re-use of materials that are not normally considered a resource. The aim is to build a more resource-efficient and sustainable Europe.

  • Smart energy systems
    To achieve climate neutrality by 2050, energy carriers, infrastructures, and consumption sectors will need to be integrated in a connected and flexible energy system that is more sustainable and cost-efficient for society.

Each session will be divided up into two parts:

  1. Presentations by Joint Secretariat and Contact Points on what the programme has achieved up to now (including project examples), and what is coming up in the future programme. – 45’

  2. Open networking sessions – 40’ (2 rounds of 20’)

    Participants will have the possibility to host virtual round tables to either:

    • Present their project results
    • Exchange on needs and challenges
    • Look for synergies
    • Discuss a project idea for the future programme.

    If you wish to host a virtual round table, please briefly describe the topic of your presentation in the registration form. Organisers will contact you after 10 May to let you know if your proposal was selected or not.
