"Europe in My Region" Kick-off Event

The land of stars and starlets: Lower Saxony can rightly claim that - at least for one evening. On May 7th, people from all over Germany came together in Hanover to present their EU funded projects at the Pitch-your-Project-Award and thus herald the nationwide kick-off of the "Europe in My Region" campaign. On the 360° stage, a total of 10 projects from 10 federal states presented themselves in an interesting, exciting and fast-paced way like never before, demonstrating how important EU funding is for people in the regions of the republic.

In the end, Angelika Hauser and Katrin Weihmann scored the most points for Rhineland-Palatinate with their empathetic project presentation "Fit in Europe" and took home the Pitch-your-Project-Award. Second place went to North Rhine-Westphalia with the enchanting Julia Graf and her "Hotel Total". Third place went to the humorous and pleasant Sebastian Kupfer for Thuringia with the "establishment of a decentralised charging network with strategic fast charging points"..
