THE MED CAPITALISATION: CONTRIBUTING TO A STRONGER EUROPE


Urban Empathy in the joint final MED capitalisation event in Brussels

On 24th and 25th March 2015 the event 'THE MED CAPITALISATION: CONTRIBUTING TO A STRONGER EUROPE' took place at the Committee of the Regions in a joint initiative by the thirteen MED capitalisation projects.

On 25th March, a side event gathering Creative MED and URBAN EMPATHY projects focused on the links between urban innovation and global value chains accross the Med space. Please, find HERE the side event's agenda.

The MED capitalization projects have been carried out in the final phase of the MED Programme and constitute in itself a pioneer initiative in the framework of the European Territorial Cooperation. In a short set of themes, they brought together outputs and results developed by previous projects with the purpose of delivering recommendations and new tools that synthetize and improve the productions of the 2007-2013 period.

The capitalisation results are now available to nourish the policy-making processes at regional, national and European  levels, as well as the new programme calls. In this sense, the seminar tackled two different aspects of the capitalisation practices:

- The first day ('From MED capitalisation to European policies') focused on the capitalisation process itself and offered the occasion to exchange experiences with other European Territorial Cooperation programmes and structures that followed very different approaches and strategies.

- The second day ('Project results for improved policies') provided insights on the results of the MED capitalization projects: the recommendations, tools and good practices that emerged from these projects were illustrated. Subsequently an exchange with relevant EU institutions and networks clarified how these could be further included into European policies and vice-versa.

The seminar is held at the Committee of the Regions and will be sponsored by Annabelle Jaeger, regional advisor of the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur and member of the Committee of the Regions.

The event's CONCLUSIONS, the CAPITALIZATION APPROACH and the PRESENTATIONS are HERE available.
