PURE HUBS & Friends



For four years we have been implementing the PURE Hubs project, together with 17 project partners from 4 North West European countries (United Kingdom,
 Netherlands, Germany, Belgium), with the aim to reconnect urban areas and their peri-urban (and rural) hinterlands and stimulate urban – rural entrepreneurship. 

15 pilot hubs provided the necessary experiences to develop the PURE Hubs strategy on how to create urban – rural ‘hubs’, which provide rural (or peri-urban) products and services to meet urban needs and make life in our cities better and more attractive.
 
   

WE ARE VERY PLEASED TO INVITE YOU TO OUR FINAL CONFERENCE ‘PURE HUBS & FRIENDS’. 

 
 
THIS FINAL CONFERENCE HAS THREE OBJECTIVES (SEE THE ATTACHED PROGRAMME): 
  1. To share our PURE Hubs strategy and lessons learnt
  2. To work on new proposals for the 2014-2020 INTERREG NWE Programme 
  3. To enjoy this final PURE Hubs meeting amongst PURE Hubs partners and friends
For the second objective ‘to work on new proposals for the 2014 – 2020 INTERREG NWE Programme’ we are preparing a ‘call for proposals’ for which we will send you a short template later. With this template you can send in ideas for new projects to be discussed during our Final Conference.
