Visit the #MadeWithInterreg exhibition
Together with the other Interreg transnational programmes, the Danube Transnational Programme will be a part of the joint exhibition Made with Interreg. The exhibition features outstanding Interreg projects and will showcase how transnational cooperation strengthens EU cohesion by providing tangible, on the ground benefits.
People from ongoing transnational Interreg projects will be there to tell you all about how they are making a difference for the regions and cities where they operate. For example, at the grand opening on 8 October, this years’ transnational RegioStar finalists – the ClimACT and one of our approved projects, Iron-Age-Danube, will be ready to talk about their successes in fostering a low-carbon economy and bringing our cultural history to life, respectively.
