6-7 May 2010, Esztergom, Hungary

The cross-border agglomeration partners of the "EGTC" project aimed to exchange on methods and tools to improve their governance, including the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation. During two years (2008-2010), they exchanged on internal governance issues and the means to involve civil society, assessing their needs, identifying best practices and the concrete measures they would develop to improve their governance: the local action plan and the European Action Plans as well as the Handbook are the main outputs of the project.

On 6 May, the partners delivered the conclusions they have come to at the end, and discussed, on 7 May, the needs and opportunities to pursue the European sharing of experience. During this 2-day event, they presented their final outputs.
