Besides keynotes and a panel discussion, four workshops on innovation, energy, environment and cultural heritage as well as transport were organised and (co-)moderated from a team of OIR, in close cooperation with INTERACT and the JTS of Central Europe. The results of the conference provide significant input for the preparation process of the future Operational Programme Central Europe 2014-2020, in which the OIR is mainly involved. Impressions of the event and the presentations given at the conference can be found on the website and on the Facebook page of Central Europe.
