We are happy to announce that the project CEESEU won the Regional Collaboration of the year as part of the Emerging Europe Awards 2022 in the category of Partnership.

Emerging Europe is a growth hub whose mission is to foster sustainable development in the emerging Europe region and initiate debate about its future. Through their expertise, global reach, strong local footprint, and vast network, Emerging Europe is a trusted partner for organisations from or with a stake in the emerging Europe region. Headquartered in London, with a team spread across emerging Europe, their aim is to connect the region and the world — raising awareness of the region’s investment, trade, cultural and tourism potential and bringing together a global, like-minded community.
The Emerging Europe Awards showcase the best of emerging Europe and has awarded dozens of unique initiatives, organisations and individuals, including global leaders who have contributed to the region’s success.

CEESEU was nominated and shortlisted among the top three in the Regional Collaboration Initiative of the Year category. The final decision was made by the 2022 jury panel and the winners was announced at the Future of Emerging Europe Summit & Awards on June 23, in Brussels.

The Regional Collaboration category is open to organisations operating in emerging Europe which implemented successful projects and initiatives aiming at creating a shared agenda on a local, national, regional and global level, sharing knowledge, experience and best practice, smart city development and encouraging collaboration with international organisations and with other parts of the world.
