The South-East Finland – Russia CBC Programme has a pleasure to welcome you to Lappeenranta, Finland for its 1st Annual Event.
CBC In My Region
On the 18th of December at 16:30-19:00 local time, the Lappeenranta University of Technology (how to get there) provide facilities to celebrate operational start of the cross-border cooperation between Finland and Russia. Event will increase the visibility of the CBC programme, promote achievements and demonstrate the added value of cooperation to the programme stakeholders and key decision-makers as well as among the local population. The event will also give floor for the first selected projects to present their activities and objectives.
What to expect? Inspirational speeches, best practices, new ideas for the future and information on what is about to be delivered during the years 2018-2022 with joint financial input of ca. 77 million euros from the European Union, Russia and Finland. On-site, small snacks to keep up positive spirit!
Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced cross-border cooperation actor, from a municipal administration or a business, an expert in public services or an education or environment specialist, we can promise something for everyone. Young citizens and students are especially welcome to experience and observe how the cooperation builds ways for their future.
Event language is English, with Russian and Finnish interpretation.
