European week of regions and cities 2017 from October 09.-12th in Brussels.
European week of regions and cities is an annual Brussels-based four-day event during which officials from regions and cities administrations, as well as experts and academics, can exchange good practices and know-how in the field of regional and urban development. It is also an acknowledged platform for political communication in relation to the development of EU Cohesion Policy, raising the awareness of decision-makers about the fact that regions and cities matter in EU policy-making.
At the beginning of October, about 6 000 participants and 600 speakers from all over Europe and beyond will gather together in Brussels for a programme of about 100 workshops, debates, exhibitions and networking events on regional and local development. The organisers adapt the programme every year to the specific context of the EU agenda. Participation in the event is free of charge. Event is jointly organised by the EU Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO).
