The summer issue of Panorama magazine covers a wide range of topics and features a final, farewell editorial from our departing Commissioner Corina Creţu. Our regional focus this time is on Moravia-Silesia in Czechia, with an interview with Regional President Ivo Vondrák, project examples, and an analysis of how they are dealing with the transition away from the coal industry towards a more climate- neutral economy. We also take a close look at transnational cooperation via the Interreg programme, featuring best practice and projects from across the continent, and how the EU Competency Framework enables effective management of EU funds. In our In Your Own Words section we have reflections from two MEPs on the REGI committee – Constanze Krehl and Jan Olbrycht – and we also hear from younger people via their experiences in the Youth4Regions media programme. We find out how the Broadband Competence Offices Network is helping to narrow the digital divide between regions, and how interregional cooperation helps enhance cybersecurity. The projects section visits Cyprus, France, the Canaries and the Italy/Austria border region.
