Round Table
Cross-Border Cooperation — In Action for Border Regions


Cross-Border Cooperation Programmes are widely considered well-functioning tools to reflect on jointly specified objectives in the Russian-Finnish cooperation.
When approaching next programming period 2021-2027, an overview on achievements and benefits for all participating regions is the key tool for further development.
When considering alternative strategies for the greener and smarter regions, and people-to-people cooperation — what can be the role of the future CBC Programmes?
And how to put implementing strategies into practice in order to meet the sustainable goals.
