ITEM annual conference 2023 | Towards a sustainable and liveable society across the border’

Friday, November 17, 2023, county hall in The Hague

At the annual conference of Expertise Centre ITEM (Maastricht University’s Institute for Transnational and Euregional cross border cooperation and Mobility / ITEM), we would like to discuss with you the significance of European transport corridors for the development towards a sustainable and liveable society and the cross-border issues involved. The province of Zuid-Holland will host the conference at the county hall in The Hague.

An important form of cross-border cooperation is the European transport corridors, which focus on issues such as pipelines, ports (hydrogen) and rail. In the corridors, Europe and the member states arrive at practical and impactful solutions. Several questions arise in cross-border cooperation on infrastructure and mobility. How can interpreting border effects at the start of new developments increase the impact in practice? How do cross-border governance structures deal with the formation of structural substantive coalitions? In what way can the use of instruments be an important catalyst for achieving transcending objectives?

We have put an interesting programme together for you. Please find the programme and registration link on our website.
