The Italian Republic in close cooperation with the European Commission and with the support of the EUSAIR Facility Point are organising the 3rd Forum of the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and the Ionian Region (EUSAIR) in Catania, Italy on the 24-25th May 2018. The traditional annual event aims to raise visibility of the EUSAIR and reflect on the progress made since the 2nd Forum held in Ioannina in May 2017.
This year's Forum will focus on the Connectivity issues, especially on challenges and opportunities for Transport and Energy networks in the EUSAIR region. The participants will also have the chance to discuss funding mechanisms for all four thematic pillars of the EUSAIR and share concrete ideas on the future prospects of the Strategy. Each year the Forum attracts numerous stakeholders, such as European Commission and other EU institutions, National ministries, Regional and Local authorities, Business sector, Academia and Civil society, who share views, exchange experience and discuss ways of cooperation. Side thematic meetings and cultural and social events will complete the programme of the Forum. An invitation to join the Forum is a great networking opportunity and contribute towards further implementation of the EUSAIR Strategy. Save the date! A detailed programme agenda, venue and practical information will follow shortly. The event registration will open at the end of April 2018.
