Workshop: “Good health without borders in the Trinational Metropolitan Region of the Upper Rhine”

The trinational cross-border metropolitan region of the Upper Rhine is a unique model at the European level. It was founded in 2010 jointly by the political and institutional actors in the Upper Rhine, but also with science, business and civil society. Its aim is to fully develop the resources of the cross-border area as a unique and attractive economic and living space, to ideally position it in European and international competition and to ensure joint spatial planning for the area.

As part of the European Week of Regions & Cities, a major event on (trans-/cross-border) regional policy and cooperation in the EU organised by the European Committee of Regions and Cities, it is offering an online workshop that will take place on 10 October from 08:50 – 10:20.

The European Week of Regions and Cities is an opportunity for cities, regions and other actors in regional development to highlight their contribution to creating growth and jobs and implementing EU cohesion policy, and to show how important the local and regional level is for good European governance.

For many years, but especially since the 2020 COVID 19 pandemic, cooperation in the field of health has been a priority for stakeholders in the Upper Rhine Trinational Metropolitan Region. How to cooperate and with which objectives?

Through various presentations, the workshop will present different types of collaborations: in the interest of patients, to further develop cutting-edge research in the health sector and to take advantage of the region’s ultra-dynamic economic ecosystem in the field of medical technology and health. Experts will report on the challenges of interregional and cross-border cooperation and share best practices as well as  the results of already implemented projects. An exchange with the audience is foreseen.

The workshop will take place online on 10 October from 08:50 (for 1.5 hours).
