Publicated on: February 27, 2014

EGTCs were awarded in the frame of the EGTC Platform meeting

The President of the Committee of the Regions, Ramón Luis Valcárcel, delivered the award 'Building Europe across Borders' to the EGTC Euroregion Pyrenees Mediterranean for its project Creamed - Business Incubators network. The ceremony took place during the 4th annual meeting of the EGTC Platform.

The award is an excellent opportunity to encourage the EGTCs to keep on working and implementing these fruitful actions in the future, in spite of the budgetary difficulties.

Two honourable mentions were awarded, one to the EGTC Gate to Europe in recognition of the project 'Together without borders'. This EGTC managed to involve a high number of territorial entities and had achieved a significant impact compared to the size of its budget. The aim of the project is to facilitate employment and development of SMEs.
