Heading North Towards the Future
ITTS to present at NPP Annual Conference 2013: Heading North Towards the Future.
On Friday 19 September, the ITTS project will present at the NPP Annual Conference 2013: Heading North Towards the Future in Skellefteå, Sweden.
With the Northern Periphery Programme (NPP) 2007-2013 now entering its final phase, the time has come to reveal a new round of cooperation for the communities of Northern Europe: The Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme (NPA) 2014-2020. Heading North Towards the Future will introduce the fresh innovations expected for the coming period, with a stronger focus on results and impacts, a different intervention approach and cooperation themes based on EU2020 strategy.
As part of the preparatory work for the 2014-2020 period, conference attendants will take part in a consultation process and will be asked to contribute to the design of the new programme, considering investment priorities and how best to translate identified new objectives into actions, products and services.
Delegates will include experienced project partners, thematic experts, public administrators, NPP program staff, entrepreneurs, researchers and other important actors of the Northern Periphery community. The event poses an important dissemination platform for the ITTS project.
The conference is being held back-to-back with the NPP Lead Partner Seminar on 18/09/13.
