ECMI hosts leading Flensburg business group

On 11 February 2011 over breakfast, the Flensburg business group “E-Club” heard about the activities of the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI). The breakfast took place in ECMI’s conference room, the Sitzungs Saal of the historic building Kompanietor on the waterfront in Flensburg. The E-Club received information about the ECMI’s institutional setup, financing and history as well as ongoing projects and field office activities. The E-Club also heard about the history of minority protection arrangements in the border region. The event was part of ECMI’s new outreach programme to bring the general public of Flensburg closer to the institution and to the Kompagnietor Building. The hope is that by bringing together research and business new initiatives for cooperation may spring.

The E-Club is a regional network of businesspeople from different branches and areas. For further information please visit: http://www.empfehlungsclub-flensburg.de/
