The Transnational Project Development Workshop on Sustainable and Competitive Communities was held January 28-29 2008 in Hamburg, Germany. The event attracted 130 participants from all regions of the North Sea Programme area.
The aim of the workshop was to generate and strengthen potential project ideas under Priority 4 in light of the second Call for Applications which will run from 18 February 2008 to 17 March 2008.
There was a strong focus on transnationality in the workshop. For more information about this concept please read the info sheet on transnationality, link below.
A plenary session with presentations outlining the challenges and possibilities of the priority in the programme context, as well as financial and communications issues opened the seminar.
