eMEN at RegioStars awards ceremony in Brussels
On behalf of the project consortium, eMEN project leader, Oyono Vlijter (Arq) participated in the big show which was organized by the European Commission for the RegioStars finalists on October 9th.
Programme director Ruut Louwers participated on behalf of the Interreg NWE Managing Authority. Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy, Enlargement Negotiations and Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn, represented the European Commission.
eMEN did not win in its category (Modernising Health Services), but did very well in the competition - the Orsi Academy won with their surgical training lab. The ceremony took place during the European Week of the Regions, the yearly event for European Structural and Cohesion Fund projects. Participation gave the eMEN project a lot of extra exposure!
