Dear representatives of the projects,

We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd Annual Event of the South-East Finland – Russia CBC 2014-
2020 Programme, which will be held on 8th of December, 12:00–16:00 (EET/Helsinki). This year
due to remaining pandemic restrictions we host the event online, in Zoom.

The Annual Event aims to demonstrate achievements of the cross-border cooperation, to reflect
upon its added value for the bordering regions, and to present the progress and milestones on the
way towards 2021–2027 Programme. The representatives of National authorities from Finland and
Russia, and of the European Commission are invited for their keynotes on the Partnership leading
towards the next programming period.

The partners of the first finalized projects are invited to present their main results and impacts.
They will share the lessons learned during the projects’ implementation, the most inspiring
moments of the cross-border interaction, and the plans and partners expectations for the future
cooperation. The day will be completed by our traditional and much anticipated Good
Communication Awards to the projects implementing best practices for transparent and fluent
cooperation between partners, as well as active, creative, and positive approach to visibility. In
2021 we will especially praise the emphasis, flexibility, and consistency in communications in the
challenging atmosphere caused by pandemic.

The event programme is enclosed, and the link to register your participation by 3.12.2021 is here:
