The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to regional policy. This year, the 500 sessions will be fully in digital format and spread over three consecutive weeks in October, each dedicated to one specific topic:

  • 5-9 October: Empowering Citizens,
  • 12-16 October: Cohesion and cooperation,
  • 19-22 October: Green Europe, in cooperation with the Green Week.

Particularly relevant on digital transformation of cities, regions and all communities:

Both sessions are highly relevant to the Commission’s ambition of pursuing a twin digital and green transformation as well as to ensuring that the digital transformation of our cities follow the European Way.

Join the discussion on 13/10/2020 about the movement and learn about its achievements since its founding declaration was signed by the first cities less than a year ago and explore how your city or region could also engage.

Hear about interesting examples of urban digital twins on 15/10/2020 in the EU and find out how your city may be able to implement its own digital twin to better manage extreme weather events, monitor pollution or model different scenarios in urban planning.
