Master Class

As part of the 17th European Week of Regions and Cities, the 7th Master Class on EU Cohesion Policy will be held for 30 PhD students and early-career researchers in the field of regional and urban policy.

[APQ] It is organised and led by the European Commission's DG for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO), the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and RSA Europe, the European foundation funded by the Regional Studies Association, in cooperation with the European Regional Science Association (ERSA), the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP), and the European Parliament’s Research Service (EPRS).

The Master Class is a unique format to connect aspiring researchers to the making and implementation of EU Cohesion Policy. It will include presentations of papers by the participants as well as lectures and panel debates with policy-makers, EU officials and senior academics to improve understanding of and research on EU Cohesion Policy.

The participants will present their final papers related to one of these themes:

  1. The Future of the EU and the roles of the Regions and Cities #EUBudget #Cohesion #Post2020 #ERDF #Subsidiarity #Democracy #Demography #InternationalCompetition #Digitalization
  2. A Europe Closer to Citizens #TerritorialCohesion #Cooperation #People #Places #Urban #Rural #LocalCommunities #Migration #AdministrativeCapacity
  3. A Greener Europe #EnergyTransition #ClimateChangeAdaptation #CircularEconomy #RiskManagement #EuropeanSolidarityFund

All papers will be summarised in a ‘book of papers’, which will be at the disposal of all involved in the Master Class in the second half of September. Participation to the sessions is reserved to the involved stakeholders.
