The Transnational Cooperation Seminar on "Integrated Regional Development - Declining and Expanding Areas in the North Sea Region" was held on 21 and 22 January in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.

140 participants attended the event. The presentations from the seminar are now available online.

During the first day of the seminar, presentations about current trends in integrated regional development and the role of the North Sea Region Programme 2007-2013 regarding the development of sustainable and competitive communities around the North Sea were given.

Beneficiaries of recently approved projects shared their experiences about becoming involved in declining and expanding areas in the North Sea Region.

Day two opened up perspectives beyond the North Sea Region Programme: Representatives of other Interreg programmes gave their views on the opportunities of integrated regional development in the European North.

The seminar closed with presentations of project ideas for the 4th and 5th Call and subsequent feedback and comments from the Secretariat.
