Practical Handbook for Regional Authorities

This handbook is inspired by the longstanding, fruitful cooperation between the Directorates-General Joint Research Centre, Regional and Urban Policy as well as other departments of the European Commission, plus the Committee of the Regions and local and regional authorities in European Union Member States. Its purpose is to elaborate, in a clear and concise manner, how regional and city authorities may support their work by using existing JRC knowledge, information and tools. The Handbook is available below in EN, FR, DE, ES, IT and PL.
