The University

A new element of OPEN DAYS 2009 was 'The University'. A series of lectures and moderated panels with renowned academics and researchers were organised by the Commission's Regional Policy DG and the Committee of the Regions on the basis of suggestions put forward by all participating regions and partners. There was no official call for papers for this part of the OPEN DAYS.

A selected number of academics/researchers were invited to hold a number of joint lectures and seminars on the four themes of OPEN DAYS (cohesion policy, territorial cooperation, innovation and climate change).

For more information on OPEN DAYS 2010 (4-7 October 2010) and the 'University' component, please contact Elisa Roller in DG REGIO.
