The 7th Cohesion Forum, which will take place on 26-27 June 2017 in Brussels, is a large scale political event held every three years, bringing together more than 700 people including high level representatives from European institutions, central governments, regional and local representatives, economic and social partners, NGOs and academics.
The European Week will take place just ahead of the publication of the Cohesion Report and of the presentation of the EU multiannual financial framework 2020-2026. In this perspective, the event will be an ideal platform for gathering and presenting the views of the regions and cities on both the budget and the subsequent legislative proposals with regard to cohesion policy and rural development.
