Study Visit and Presidium meeting in North-Brabant, the Netherlands

The Presidium meeting discussed the Regional Action Plans and the development of e-learning modules. The Regional Action Plans consist of the implementation of the exchanged practices within the project. These plans will need “Strategic Documents”, which will design the specific procedure to implement a concrete “good practice”. This way, as many good practices as possible will be effectively implemented in other partner regions, which will profit from the know-how of the regions that originally developed those practices. The e-learning modules compile experiences that the WATER CoRe project has gathered. This information is classified into 7 modules, each one studying the key aspects of water scarcity and drought. It is foreseen that the WATER CoRe e-learning modules will be available by the beginning of summer at the official website Initially, e-modules will be available in English language, and later on they will also be available in the project partner’s languages – German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Hungarian and Romanian.


This project is cofinanced by the ERDF and made possible by the INTERREG IVC programme


The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
