Editorial: call for stronger visibility in member regions

Optimizing the regional anchorage of the network is a pivotal objective for 2012. One corner stone of this idea is intensified promotion of NEREUS within our member regions. The secretariat has already developed some ideas how we are going to support the activities of our members. English will always remain the working language of our platform. However to have some “appetizers” for interested newcomers we are going to develop a small number of info-material in the native languages of our members. In a first step with the help of volunteers we would like to produce versions of the NEREUS-video in German, Italian, French etc.

Another important aspect will be to intensify the dialogue with our regions with the aim to develop regional strategies for the involvement in NEREUS. Regions will gain much more from their membership if they are aware of their strengths and interests and define based on their regional profile carefully in which areas they wish to cooperate at a European level.

We wish you a pleasant read,

Also, we like to take the opportunity to wish you all the best for the holiday season,
