Mid-term project meeting and Transnational Event
The two events took place in Usti (CZ) respectively on June 20 and 21, 2013 hosted by the Usti Region.
On the 20th the internal partner meeting and Steering Committee meeting took place: project partners discussed the advancement of activities focussing in particular on the forthcoming implementation of Pilot Actions.
Highlighting project midterm achievements and launching the Draft Strategy for the revitalisation of markets has been the aim of the CENTRAL MARKETS transnational event held the following day. Project partner’s political representatives got involved in intense discussions that focused on the role of markets as drivers for the development of town centres. The main topic of the roundtable discussion concerned the strategies carried out to keep vibrant and vital town centres and promoting the markets.
The event benefited also of the presence of external speakers including Ms. Angelika Pothe-Mogele, Policy Director of CEMR, Mr. Nick Small, Chair of Eurocities Economic Development Forum and Liverpool Cabinet Member for employment, enterprise and skills and Mr. Christophe Ebermann JTS Deputy Head of Evaluation and Monitoring Unit.
The conference was also the occasion for the project partners and the audience to hear about European best practices on markets management and policies. Ms Marion Cugnet from London Cross River Partnership shared her knowledge and experience acquired on the London market’s policy and within another market related project named URBACT MARKET.
