On 3 and 4 July 2012, several EU Choices countries met in Prague to reflect on the Programme’s development thus far, and to discuss its future. It was a lively meeting, with discussions on industry participation, communication and research on the impact of the logo. Participants shared best practices, gained new insights and put forward new ideas.
