Final conference of the project Montana174
20 Sep 2022 00:00 - 20 Sep 2022 00:00

The DG-REGIO project Montana174 will hold its final conference “How to foster the effective uptake of Cohesion Policy funds in mountain areas?” on 20 September, 10.00- 16.30, in Brussels (Belgium).

Montana174 is a one-year communication campaign to inform and engage mountain citizens on the Cohesion Policy in five European mountain regions. The conference will capitalize on the Montana174 lessons learnt on challenges and needs of mountain stakeholders, as well as existing practices to encourage the uptake of Cohesion Policy funds in European mountains. Good practices and videos, including some examples from Interreg programmes will be presented.

Potential beneficiaries of European funds in mountain areas are too often unaware of the opportunities offered by the Cohesion Policy and face a number of barriers limiting the uptake of these funds in their regions. What are the barriers hindering the uptake of the Cohesion funds in mountain regions? How can Managing Authorities and other relevant actors better inform mountain actors on the opportunities of the 2021-2027 Cohesion Policy in their region? What kind of support is needed to help mountain stakeholders make the most of these funds?

The conference will bring together representatives from Managing Authorities, European institutions, policy and decision-makers, and relevant networks

Simultaneous translation in French and English will be available.The event will be web streamed.
