'Growing together – Smart investment for people' is the slogan of the 12th European Week of Regions and Cities, to be held from 6 to 9 October 2014 in Brussels.
The event will be a forum for EU institutions, managing authorities and final beneficiaries to exchange about the main priorities for the region between 2014-2020 and to look into new instruments (e.g. Integrated Territorial Investments and Community-led Local Development or new financial instruments).
Over 600 speakers, amongst them 80 elected politicians, will stimulate this debate, structured around three thematic priorities: connecting regional strategies; building capacity; territorial cooperation.
The OPEN DAYS is the biggest annual event on regional and urban development, jointly organised by the EU Committee of the Regions and the European Commission's Regional and Urban Policy DG.
