The 4th “Interregional Learning Event” of the InterregEurope project “STEPHANIE”: Good practices form the basis for strategic recommendations for action. 

The 4th Interregional Learning Event took place in Düsseldorf on 10 and 11 July 2018. Besides the project meeting, the regional stakeholders “Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT” and the “Research Campus Digital Photonic Production” of RWTH Aachen University were visited. 

The aim of the meeting was to assess and discuss regional examples of good practice in the context of the regional visions which were already developed in the last meeting in a bilateral exchange. Both the exchange between the project partners and the involvement of regional stakeholders and interest groups in the STEPHANIE project are important success factors with great influence on the strategic recommendations for action that will be developed in the further course of the project. 

The 5th Interregional Learning Event is planned for the end of 2018 in Seville.
