Welcome to the Winter 2016 edition of Panorama. In this issue Commissioner Corina Creţu takes stock of the achievements of 2016 and looks ahead to the challenges for 2017. Our main feature looks at the EU's participation in the recent Habitat III conference in Quito, Ecuador, which allowed for the sharing of experiences from around the world in the domain of sustainable urban development. We review this year's successful European Week of Regions and Cities, reveal some of the key findings of the ex-post evaluation of the 2007-2013 funding period, and look forward to the future of the Baltic Region Strategy. Our in-depth look at one region this time features the newly-created French region Grand Est, with an interview with the region's president and a selection of recent successful projects, and In Your Own Words features contributions from Poland, Italy, Romania and the Netherlands. 

Our Projects section features contributions from Greece and the Netherlands, and the expanded project feature goes more in depth on a shipping project in the South Baltic region. You will also find a poster of the best Europe In My Region photo competition entries.
