    Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy presents its new comic book

    13/05/2014

    The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy has just published a brand new comic book called ’Partners’ which aims at presenting Regional and Urban Policy through six stories designed to appeal to a young audience. The themes covered in this album are Research & Innovation, Urban Development, Environment, Support to SMEs, Social Inclusion, ICT, Cooperation between regions, Transport, Solidarity between regions in case of natural disasters, etc. These slices of life and stories of men and women were inspired by real EU-funded projects that illustrate the European Union’s contribution to reducing differences in standards of living and supporting the regions in their development.

    Art on Chairs: Crecimiento inteligente: innovación en las PYMEs

    31/03/2014

    La industria del mueble ha sido una de las principales actividades económicas en la ciudad de Paredes, en el norte de Portugal, con la mayor concentración de fábricas de sillas en Europa, y representa el 65 % de la producción nacional de muebles. Aunque esta industria era en su momento muy productiva, tiene ahora una imagen de industria anticuada y conservadora. Art on Chairs ha dado un nuevo aliento a esta industria tradicional asociándola al mundo del diseño para hacer de la fabricación de sillas un arte. Esta cooperación ha fomentado la creatividad de esta industria, ha mejorado su productividad y ha aumentado las exportaciones internacionales.
