RegioStars awards for innovative projects
'RegioStars' forms part of the Commission's 'Regions for Economic Change' initiative, which seeks to promote the exchange of experiences and good practices between Europe's regions as a way of boosting innovation.
The 'RegioStars' awards are held annually and aim to identify and celebrate regional development projects supported by the EU's Regional Policy. The awards showcase original and innovative projects that could provide inspiration to other regions in fields as varied as climate change, research and business support.
To be nominated for an award, projects must invariably be innovative in character, demonstrate their sustainable credentials and show that they have made a positive contribution to their region's economy. They must also have produced results that may enhance local, regional and interregional partnerships.
