The Interreg Project Slam is an annual competition organized by Interact which promotes innovative communication approaches related to projects’ results. The Interreg Project Slam 2019 will be part of the “European Week of Regions and Cities” taking place from 7 to 11 October 2019 in Brussels. Interreg projects are invited to present their project’s results using catchy communication technics including social media and video storytelling. If you are interested in presenting your project, this year’s edition will focus on:
- A Europe closer to citizens;
- A greener Europe;
- A smarter Europe;
- A more connected Europe through mobility;
- A more socially integrated Europe;
The application period opened on 1 March 2019 and will close on 30 April 2019 at 12:00 PM CET. ADRION projects interested in applying to the competition are asked to send to the Joint Secretariat all the information requested by the application form by 12 April 2019.
Fore more information and details on how to apply and to learn about the selection process, please consult the call for proposal at https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/InterregProjectSlam2019
The selection process includes a first selection conducted by the European Commission and Interreg programmes who will select the finalists based on the contents of the 180-second pitch videos. The finalists will have the chance to present their projects on stage in a TED talk style using a story-telling pattern during the Interreg Slam 2019 session at the EU Regions Week in Brussels in October 2019.
Interact will organize social media voting to the 3-minute pitch videos of the finalist projects. The most voted video will be awarded “Social Media Award” during the Project Slam, while the ultimate winner will be selected by the live audience through a live electronic voting system.
We believe the Interreg Project Slam 2019 competition can be a great opportunity for the ADRION projects to share good practices, increase their visibility and, if selected as a finalist, to present your project to a live audience in Brussels.
We are looking forward to receiving your applications!
