Discussion on the status of German-Czech cooperation on May 27 in Dresden

On May 27th from 1 p.m. a panel discussion will take place in the Dresden Environmental Center under the title "20 years of joint projects: Where is Czech-German cooperation heading?"


This year marks 20 years since the Czech Republic joined the European Union. One of the main benefits that EU membership has brought is access to EU funding. Cohesion policy supports not only projects on Czech territory, but also initiatives that strengthen cross-border relations. Over the past 20 years, the Czech Republic has invested billions in joint projects with Saxony. How do the regional partners assess this cooperation? And how do they envision the next 20 years?

  • What is the benefit of cross-border cooperation between the Czech Republic as a "new" EU member state and Germany
  • as a "long-standing" EU member state?
  • How has the role of the Czech Republic in cross-border cooperation developed over the last 20 years in the EU?
  • How do the regional partners assess this cooperation? And how do they envisage it in the future?
  • What has proven successful in the collaboration over the years? What have been the successes of the collaboration so far? And what should be improved?
  • become?
  • Which lighthouse projects are financed by the Interreg programme? And which projects are in the preparation phase?

Elke Zepak, Managing Director of the Erzgebirge Euroregion, and Vladimír Lipský, Managing Director of the Elbe/Labe Euroregion, have been invited to take part in the discussion.

The event is organised by the European media network EURACTIV.
