Open Days - 10th European Week of Regions and Cities
08/10/2012 - 11/10/2012
The OPEN DAYS – 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.
Under the heading 'Europe's regions and cities: Making a difference', the OPEN DAYS 2012 seminars and workshops are structured around three thematic priorities:
Kaupunki: Bryssel (Belgia )
Smart and green growth for all – How does cohesion policy contribute to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth?
Territorial cooperation: an asset for Europe – How can cooperation be used as a tool for regional development and better exploitation of regional potential? What is the added value of co-operation both within cooperation programmes and regional programmes, the European Grouping on Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) and macro-regional strategies? How to make best use of these instruments?
Delivering results – What are the main achievements of the EU cohesion policy? And how can the intentions of the new regulatory framework proposed by the European Commission for 2014-2020 be best implemented?
