The Interreg MED Programme community is coming together on November 6th to discuss Mediterranean governance issues

The Interreg MED Programme together with the Agence Nationale de la Cohésion des Territoires (ANCT) are organising the MED Annual Event, a brainstorming conference on the future of European territorial cooperation in order to better coordinate and strengthen the governance actions in the Mediterranean.

This year’s edition, entitled "Past, present and future of the Interreg MED Programme and of the Governance in the Mediterranean", will be devoted to the Programme’s priority axis 4, focused on enhancing governance in the Mediterranean. The event will take place on November 6th, with a hybrid format: both physically (in Paris, France) and on-line, in order to comply with health recommendations.

Throughout the event, consisting of three plenary sessions, participants will assess progress of the programme and its architecture and discuss different approaches, processes and results to pave the way for the next 2 years of implementation. The event will also provide an excellent opportunity to share different perspectives on the Interreg MED next programming period 2021-2027.

To better contribute to the discussion, PANORAMED project partners will elaborate a collective reflection paper, with a twofold objective:

  1. To highlight the work done so far in PANORAMED and to showcase the project’s contribution to governance in terms of dialogue process and results;
  2. To build on experience so as to deliver key messages about coordination of actions and strengthening of governance in the framework of the European Cohesion Policy in the Mediterranean.

PANORAMED Horizontal Projects are also producing a joint position paper on the contribution of MED thematic communities to European Green Deal. This document will identify main policy areas that should be prioritised so as to enhance coherence and . In addition, it will reflect on how territories can capitalise on the project’s results.



PANORAMED is a flagship project under Interreg MED axis 4, specifically tackling capacity of national and regional actors to establish a permanent dialogue and decision-making processes in the Mediterranean

With 21 partners from 12 European countries, PANORAMED provides a transnational evidence-based platform of national and regional authorities and supports the definition of governance joint frameworks.
