Panel discussion in Brussels: The potential role of EU macro-regional strategies post-2020

Announcement of an interesting panel discussion during the European Week of Regions in Brussel:

„The four EU macro-regional strategies (MRS) developed to date for the Baltic Sea, Danube, Adriatic and Ionian as well as for the Alpine Region have received considerable political commitment. They provide a unique attempt to underpin transnational cooperation with concrete goals for regional developments in policy areas such as environment or transport. The workshop discusses, first, in what ways macro-regional activities can be better embedded in regional policy and how cohesion policy can profit from MRS experiences, and second, how MRS can support and steer the implementation of European Structural and Investment Funds and support spatial integration through sectoral and regional policies.“

Registration for participants is open now.
