The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual four-day event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.
Since 2003, the event has grown into the key event on EU Regional Policy. It welcomes some 6,000 participants (local, regional, national and European decision-makers and experts) in October each year, for more than 100 workshops, debates, exhibitions and networking opportunities.
As part of a wider cooperation between the transnational Interreg programmes, a joint Made by Interreg exhibition will be displayed at the Agora exhibition in the Grand hall 1&2, Square Conference Center in Brussels. This display will look into some concrete examples of how transnational cooperation, projects, programmes and the European Union together have an impact on the everyday lives of people. Moreover, the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020 has selected our ERNACT led, IMPROVE project, to be showcased as an example of helping public authorities to offer better services for citizens and companies, alongside APP4SEA project.
Colm Mc Colgan, ERNACT General Manager, invites you to come along on Wednesday 10th October where you can learn more about:
- The new key free home care system developed by our partner - The Association of Local Authorities in Västernorrland (Sweden)
- The planning crowd sourced service developed by our partner - Donegal County Council (Ireland)
