The 19th edition of the Beyond Borders Breakfast Debate will delve into how to facilitate cross-border travel between cross-border regions. The main objective is to explore how the public sector can establish and guarantee a reliable and efficient cross-border public transport service, especially for road transport such as buses or tram lines.

We will also discuss strategies to encourage cross-border commuters to choose public transport over private vehicles. Throughout the session, you’ll be able to hear about real experiences, as well as new suggestions to create reliable cross-border transport services in the EU. 

The debate will feature an esteemed panel, including the following speakers:

  • Marlies Peeters, Programme Manager, DG REGIO, Unit Interreg, Cross-border Cooperation and Internal Borders, European Commission.
  • Marcin Wójcik, Policy Officer, DG MOVE.
  • Paolo Dileno, Project Manager, Central European Initiative – Executive Secretariat (CEI-ES)GIO.
  • Hanna Kroll, Project Manager, Aachen Transport Association.
  • Sandra Sodini, Director of the Office for International relations, Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.
