EURINT 2015: Regional development and integration. New challenges for the EU
22-23 May 2015, Iasi, Romania
The purpose of this 3rd edition of EURINT international conference entitled 'Regional development and integration. New challenges for the EU' is to provide a proper context for mutual dialogue, joint knowledge and a better understanding of the challenges the EU faces in the current European milieu marked by a gradual regionalization process.
Since becoming members of the EU the Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs) have experienced an ongoing process of decentralization, devolution and regionalization which, in turn, brought about different ways of envisaging regional development. By and large, regional development can be seen as a general effort to reduce regional economic disparities by supporting several economic activities in the less development regions. Main objectives have been large-scale infrastructure development, creating opportunities for inward investment, policies to enhance social cohesion and other top-down and bottom-up initiatives meant to help regions to catch-up and to establish economic clusters of development.
The event is organised by Centre for European Studies from 'Alexandru Ioan Cuza' University of Iasi - Romania.
