Investment for jobs and growth: Promoting development and good governance in EU regions and cities
The Cohesion Forum, which will take place on 8-9 September 2014 in Brussels, is a major political event bringing together more than 700 people including high level representatives from European institutions, heads of governments and ministers, regional and local representatives, economic and social partners, NGOs and academics.
The main goal is to discuss how the new generation of cohesion policy programmes launched in 2014 can contribute to the recovery of the European economy. With a budget of more than EUR 350 billion, cohesion policy can play a key role in supporting growth-enhancing and job-creating investments in 2014-20.
The Cohesion Forum is a unique opportunity to discuss with all stakeholders how EU policies can improve the living conditions and opportunities for all European citizens in the years to come.
