November 21, 2013 – ICLRD and CCBS will host a joint 2‐day conference titled “Cross Border Economic Development and the Border Development Zone Concept” in late January 2014. The conference will bring together leading figures from the border region, including representatives from local authorities, local enterprise agencies and business organisations, along with individual entrepreneurs and business leaders from the cross‐border region and interested central government officials. It will identify a different and innovative way of mobilising existing resources and structures in the cross‐border region and consider how key regional actors can drive this new strategy to revive and energise the region from the ‘bottom up.’ Click here for more information or contact Ms. Eimear Donnelly, Centre for Cross Border Studies at eimear.donnelly @ qub.ac.uk
