Mini Europe was officially showcased as a good example of transnational working in November in the city of Liverpool to partners across the North West Region. The event was hosted by the North West Development Agency and the Committee of the Regions Open Days .

Bob Pels, Mini Europe’s General Manager, from the province of Flevoland, and Russell Yates, Regional Content Manager for the North West of England, from Tameside MBC, were interviewed on stage in front of a regional delegation of stakeholders by Councillor Flo Clucas, Liverpool City Council, on their experiences of transnational working and the practices covered by Mini Europe. The discussion highlighted some of the current exchanges that the North West is involved with, including: the Summer Entrepreneur programme and Summer Design Office, both from Sweden; the Tameside Business Family; the Cluster Development work that the North West is doing with Mini Europe partners in Hungary and Romania; the North West’s good practices in supporting female entrepreneuship; the North West Universities Association’s work with Greece on the North West’s Higher Level Skills Partnership programme; and how these programmes are being mainstreamed into regional and local policies and frameworks.

The event was carried out to showcase a number of projects currently taking place in the North West of England region – many of which concern support for Enterprise and Innovation and may be of interest to Mini Europe Stakeholders. The presentations from the event including ERDF projects in the region currently offering support for High Growth Businesses, Business Support programmes delivered by the region’s universities and Tourism projects, can be viewed here.
