The Interreg Project Slam 2021

Brussels, Belgium
18 May - 21 Sep
00:00 - 00:00

In 2021 the Interreg Project Slam will be held in connection with the European Cooperation Day Campaign in the week of 21 September 2021.

The different steps and the calendar can be checked in detail HERE.

In 2021, the Interreg Project Slam will focus on the achievements of Interreg Programmes in the 2014-2020 period, as this is the moment to show the achievements of the end of the programming period, and we want programmes to be at the centre of this.

Interact welcomes stories (based on project results) from Programmes, focusing on their achievements, and told in a form of a story. Programmes are encouraged to dig and look into the project’s results that really show what cooperation is about. And then, to produce powerful stories that can resonate with people who don’t always know what Interreg does. These stories could be based on a single project, that really showed what you stand for, or a mix of projects. It could be a story about the programme itself, and how your work manages to get countries closer, or even a communication campaign you ran to attract new project partners and make a difference.

To help you do this work of telling your stories, we provide free training courses in May and June 2021, involving experts to help us craft better stories, faster.
