8-11 October is all about the European regions and cities: 4 days, 170 sessions, 6000 participants
From 8th until 11th of October, some 6 000 participants and 600 speakers from all over Europe and beyond gather together in Brussels for a program of some 150 working sessions, exhibitions and networking events on regional and local development. Created in 2003, the event has become a European networking platform for experts in regional and local development. Exchange of good practices in economic development and social inclusion, cross-border cooperation, public-private partnerships, regional innovation and community-led local development have become some of its many topics.
Adapting its program every year to the specific context of the EU agenda, this year edition will be under the headline of “For a strong EU Cohesion Policy beyond 2020”. The 16th European Week of Regions and Cities will be a key platform where to gather and present the views of European regions and cities on both the budget and the legislative proposals related to Cohesion Policy and rural development, as well as discuss the future of Europe in a regional and local perspective.
Discussions during the event will examine:
- The need of a strong Cohesion Policy beyond 2020 to overcome structural barriers, boost human capital and improve the quality of life.
- Growth and regional development, understanding and managing the territorial impacts of globalisation and digital transformation, regional dimension of climate change and energy transition.
- Integrated territorial development as well as effective regional and local strategies on youth, integration of migrants and social exclusion.
The thematic priorities have been identified through a public online survey carried out from 15 December 2017 to 14 January 2018.
