International Conference on Territorial and Inter-Organizational Cooperation 2023

Conference will take place in Brenna, Poland, from 20.09 to 22.09.2023.

It is organized in the frame of the project titled: "European territorial and inter-organizational cooperation - regional and cross-border perspective", no DNK/SN/550509/2022.

The project is co-financed by the state budget under the Program of the Minister of Education and Science (Poland); the co-financing amount is PLN 57,000; total project value of PLN 65,000.

The leader of the Project is the Research Institute on Territorial and Inter-Organizational Cooperation, WSB University, Poland.

The Project Partners are the following organizations:

  • The Association for Regional Development and Cooperation "Olza", Cieszyn, Poland
  • Central European Service for Cross-Border Initiatives, Budapest, Hungary
  • Euro-Instutite, Kehl, Germany
  • European Centre for Minority Issues, Flensburg, Germany
  • Regional Association of Territorial Cooperation of Těšín Silesia, Czech Cieszyn, Czechia
  • Scientific Society for Organization and Management, Branch in Dąbrowa Górnicza, Poland
  • University of Greater Region, Luxembourg
  • Visegrad Institute Fundation, Cieszyn, Poland.

The Conference is addressed to researchers and practitioners, dealing with different aspects of territorial and inter-organizational cooperation in local, regional, cross-border and international dimensions.

The Conference is characterized by its interdisciplinary approach resulting from raising multi-perspective scientific problems and innovative formulas. The Conference’s main aim is networking and forming international, interdisciplinary scientific teams working together on new scientific challenges.

The 3-day Conference agenda includes:

  • he plenary session
  • the poster session
  • two thematic sessions:

Inter-regional and cross-border cooperation

Sustainable development as a part of the European cohesion policy

  • two debates of experts:

Public governance toward the future challenges of inter-regional and cross-border

Minorities issue as a hotspot in the inter-organizational relations on regions and borderlands


My intention is for the Conference to become an international platform of scientific cooperation represented by different academic centres and practitioners, who should take full advantage of the research results.

Thanks to the above-mentioned Program of the Minister of Education and Science (Poland) that financially supports the conference, attendance is free of charge. Participants cover the costs of travel and accommodation.

Despite the Conference being organized in the hybrid formula, I genuinely hope that since the pandemic COVID-19 has decreased, most of us will meet onsite in Brenna.

I believe that establishing continuous scientific cooperation with Research Institute on Territorial and Inter-Organizational Cooperation, which I run, would benefit each Conference participant in the form of joint projects and scientific publications.
