Since 2012, we have been regularly organizing our professional event, the Oradea Process, helping the Hungarian-Romanian cross-border cooperation. This year, we organized a workshop, albeit online, with the Association of French Central and Eastern European Initiatives, during which French experts gave presentations on their experiences with cross-border integrated planning and development, and then discussed with local stakeholders the possibility of launching a similar strategic planning process in the region.


What are the benefits of cross-border cooperation? How and why do we use this tool? How do these cooperation projects contribute to the construction and reconciliation of the European Area?
These and similar questions will be answered at the webinar "The benefits of cross-border cooperation for European construction - 100 years after Trianon", co-organized by CESCI, on 28 October 2020 from 17:00.

More information and free registration here. The event will be held in Hungarian and French.
