In an effort to bring the message of the OPEN DAYS closer to citizens, each participating region and city organises at least one event locally to be held between September and November 2015 under the heading 'Europe in my region/city'.
Local events are organised around the OPEN DAYS thematic priorities. They target the general public, potential beneficiaries of EU regional policy, expert audiences, academics and the media and can take various formats such as conferences, workshops, radio/TV broadcasts or exhibitions. Local events can also be organised in conjunction with the launch of EU regional policy projects or in the framework of annual information measures as required by the Structural Funds' regulations.
Regional and local administrations, institutions or organisations which are not members of a regional partnership can also propose local events in the framework of the OPEN DAYS 2015. They will have to apply separately including a description of the events planned.
For more information on the organisation of local events, please check the 'become a partner' section.
Consult the country leaflets for more detailed information.
