Focussing on the competitveness of Europe's regions, the two institutions will present recent data. The OECD can offer a broader perspective by adding data from its other countries outside the EU, while Eurostat will look deeper into socio-economic phenomena the European regions. Together, they aim to give the audience a broad overview of what data is available where, how to access it and the situation in the regions, thus feeding into to the discussions on the cohesion budget as part of the MFF 2021 negotitations.
We will present new international comparative evidence on regions and cities in over 40 countries, backed up by maps and charts from the newly released publications mentioned above, and will offer guidance on where to find more information.
Contributions will be given by a variety of experienced speakers.
