Hungary looks to a brighter future
Regional and Urban Policy
The spring issue of Panorama magazine is now available to download, featuring an exclusive interview with Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms Elisa Ferreira. The wide-ranging discussion covers her past experiences and her priorities for the future. Our country focus this time is on Hungary. As well as a wide selection of projects there is also an interview with László Palkovics, Hungarian Minister for Innovation and Technology on his plans for increasing his country’s competitiveness. Our other main article showcases successful projects funded through Interreg in the year in which it celebrates its 30th anniversary. We look at the work of the ongoing “EU delivers in the regions” communications campaign, interview the leader of the Administrative Capacity Building pilot action team Kostas Raftopoulos, and evaluate the success of the EU’s Catching-Up Regions initiative. The In Your Own Words section features a contribution from the Baltic Sea Region, and our Youth4Regions journalist reports on the CITIES Forum which took place recently in Porto. The projects section visits Czechia, Croatia, Serbia, Estonia and Germany.
