6th Partner meeting of the European Region of Gastronomy Platform takes place in Bergamo

The 6th partner meeting of European Region of Gastronomy Platform, organized by IGCAT and hosted by the University of Bergamo, Italy took place on 30 September and 1 October 2015. Twenty colleagues from 9 founder regions attended the meeting and reported on activities being developed in each region as well in collaboration with each other such as a new  European Young Chef Award which will be celebrated in Catalonia during its title year. The meeting also approved the proposals for ambassadors of the project and committed to honouring Anton Rombouts, Mayor of s’Hertogenbosch for his commitment to the Award.  The second half of the meeting concentrated on developing an internal and external communication strategy for the Platform and the individual regions.  Given wide interest at regional, national and international level, even before the first title year will be rolled out, it was felt that the Platform needs to put this new plan into practice as soon as possible.  The next partner meeting will take place in North Brabant in March 2016.
