The 9th Congress of the European Chemical Regions will be organised on 27th October 2011 in Halle/Saale (Germany), hosted by ECRN member region Saxony-Anhalt.
This year the theme of this annual event will be European regional policy and “Sustainable use of structural funds in chemical regions”. At the Congress, the participants have a chance to see a range of interesting presentations, attend workshops and meet prominent speakers from regions, the EU, public sector, industry, and research.
Discussions will focus particularly on the potential and opportunities for sustainable use of structural funds in the European chemical regions in the context of Europe 2020 Strategy. As in previous years, we look forward to sharing ideas and experiences with different chemical stakeholders.
Congress Agenda and additional information is also available here.
