First transnational thematic workshop,
"Maritime activities & territorial integration across seas"
Liverpool, March 13th-14th, 2003

Liverpool launches new wave of ideas for Maritime cooperation.

Port authorities, consultants, national administrations were amongst the 80 participants.
Some 80 participants crossed the seas from Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, France & Germany to take part in this thematic workshop organised by the NWE Programme secretariat on maritime cooperation. The workshop was very productive with some fifteen project ideas emerging on a variety of key issues…

The main objective of this workshop was to stimulate the development of several quality project proposals together with the participants and to lay the ground for promising partnerships. Participants were all key players in the different topics covered by the event.

The event started with a plenary session where the basic principles of the NWE Programme were explained. Following this, four expert guest speakers gave a presentation on the four main topics of the event. (For further details on the different project ideas download the summary report . You can also download  the guest speaker presentations by clicking on the workshop of your choice.)

Participants post up key issues during one of the subgroup discussions.
This was followed by four parallel subgroup sessions where participants broke up into smaller groups to discuss and identify key areas where transnational co-operation could make a significant contribution. Following this first discussion each subgroup was asked to agree on a shortlist of topics they wanted to further elaborate. During the second subgroup session that followed the next day participants were asked to further elaborate on the selected theme and to define objectives, measures and partners for possible projects. Members of the Joint Technical Secretariat and the Programme Contact Points from France, the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK, Ireland and Germany took part in the subgroup moderation and were at hand to answer specific questions. A spokesman from each subgroup was asked to report the results of  this second session to a final plenary round-up session.
