On 12 December 2011, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, took part in the Conference "Governing in partnership - United to build a stronger Europe" organised by the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) in collaboration with the other major European networks of local and regional authorities, the Assembly of European Regions (AER), the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) and Eurocities.
During the session "Towards a new model of governance in Europe", José Manuel Barroso delivered a speech presenting the prospects for adopting a common approach to achieve the Europe 2020 strategy via governing in partnership. This form of governance would involve all spheres of government, as well as civil society, and both the academic and economic worlds. PHOTOSHOTLIST
