We are pleased to announce that the kick-off meeting of the GROW RUP project will be held on 28-29 March 2017 in Brussels. The purpose of this first meeting will be the overall definition of work structures, tasks and responsibilities among partner regions to ensure effective coordination and collaboration within the project.  

The kick-off meeting is organised in conjunction with the Conference of the Presidents of Outermost Regions taking place on 30-1 March 2017 in Brussels. This year, the Forum will point up the importance of the integration of the Outermost Regions in their neighbouring markets, as a key element for their socio-economic development, as well as important issues such as blue and green growth and circular economy.
