We are MED

Wednesday 17th May 2017 - Museo de la Universidad de Alicante

On 17th May in Alicante, the Interreg MED Programme is organising a community building event entitled "We are MED" - Going beyond thematic communities. The event will be the occasion to work together on a common work methodology and last but not least build a strong Interreg MED community.


The eight Interreg MED thematic communities of projects have started working with their related modular projects, following the approval of the first projects in 2016. 

However, in addition to the work carried out within each thematic community, it is most important to induce synergies and transversal debates between them, right from the start by creating a joint work dynamic and a sense of belonging to the Interreg MED community of stakeholders. 

Thus, one key point of this event is to explicit the work and inherent knowledge of each thematic community, in order for them to acquire a greater degree of self awareness and certainty on methodologies and aims. This fruitful interaction will lead the Programme to an improved transfer of results and consolidate the capitalisation process, thus reinforcing the outreach and the impact of the Programme in its territories.

In this regard, the event also aims at preparing the capitalisation process that will be highlighted later during the mid term Transnational event that will take place in April 2018.

The thematic community event is therefore the best occasion to start building the basis for this joint process and to identify transversal themes in addition to bringing together projects from different thematics.


  • Creating a work dynamic between all thematic communities and finding a common work methodology;
  • Fostering a team spirit;
  • Enhancing the capitalisation process of the upcoming May 2018 mid term transnational event;
  • Presenting and sharing plans and ideas;
  • Pointing out potential problems, solutions and good practices.
