The Winter edition of Panorama leads with an exclusive interview with the new Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Crețu, in which she outlines her vision of the development of the policy over the coming years. Another major article shows how EU Cohesion Policy is helping to tackle the challenges of climate change and energy security by investing in the low-carbon economy. We also take a look at a number of initiatives which have been launched by the European Commission to assist EU Member States in boosting administrative capacity for managing European Structural and Investment Funds, and analyse the ‘Van den Brande Report’ on Multilevel Governance and Partnership, which aims to ensure better coherence between the Europe 2020 Strategy and the Partnership Agreements.

Elsewhere we review the success of this year's OPEN DAYS event in Brussels; outline the main challenges and results of the Italian Presidency of the European Council; look at the future of the EU's Urban Agenda; and explore the past, present and future of Interreg territorial cooperation.
