RegioStars Awards 2011: Presentation of finalists
|Available languages :|
"The thematic categories for the 2011 RegioStars were chosen with a clear focus on identifying and recognising projects linked to key political priorities for cohesion policy in the light of the Europe 2020 strategy. The 21 thematic finalists are short listed for four awards under the two headings of “economic competitiveness” at regional level and “low carbon economy” in an urban context (CityStars). These projects present innovative and significant urban, regional or national initiatives that are contributing to important European priorities. I am particularly struck by the examples of synergies between different EU funding programmes and by the examples clearly showing how regional policy is supporting innovation and sustainable development in different territorial contexts. There are examples from our cities, our maritime regions, our peripheral areas but also across regional and national borders."
