With the aim of exchanging experience, information and innovation in order to promote best practices and make cooperation easier, Interact is organizing a contest open to creative and original projects: the Interreg Project Slam.
Drawing on two previous experiences – the ’25 years of Interreg’ conference and the ‘Interreg Talks: 6 projects, 1 slam’ event during which projects and their results were showcased by project team members, the Interreg Project Slam 2019 is dedicated to innovative communication approaches of projects. The aim of this event is to demonstrate how Interreg works by the people who are involved in territorial cooperation every day.
How does it work?
The contest is open to projects of the Interreg IPA CBC Programme Croatia-Serbia 2014-2020 tackling the following issues:
- A Europe closer to citizens;
- A greener Europe;
- A smarter Europe;
- A more connected Europe;
- A more socially integrated Europe
Applicants have to submit a 180-second video pitch which demonstrates high communication value and attractiveness for both stakeholders and wider audiences. The videos should be voiced in English language.
How and when to apply?
The application process is handled by the Managing Authority and Joint Secretariat in cooperation with project partners. If you are interested to participate in the contest and have a great and original idea how to present your project, let us know by sending us an e-mail with the short clip by 22 April 2019. The video must be recorded by project partners and finished and uploaded to meet the application deadline: 30 April 2019.
After finishing the application process, a jury composed of relevant experts from the European Commission, Interact and Interreg programmes will select finalists, based on the quality of content of the 180-second pitch videos. The selected projects will be invited to present their ideas during the Interreg Projects Slam 2019 session which is organized as part of the EU Regions Week in Brussels in October 2019. The ultimate winner of the Slam will be selected by the live audience through a live electronic voting system during the event.
What about the results?
After closing of the deadline on 30 April 2019, selected projects will be announced between 13 and 17 May 2019 and details on further work will be disclosed then.
