European Week of Regions and Cities 2023

The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual conference dedicated to cohesion policy held in Brussels. This year, EU-funded projects managed by the European Research Executive Agency (REA) will join the event’s four-day agenda, bringing together researchers and specialists from various areas of expertise.

After a successful edition in 2022 – where the event reached a record number of almost 20 000 participants, 272 sessions and 528 partners – this year’s edition will continue to discuss common challenges for Europe’s regions and cities. By bringing together different socio-political actors, the event will examine possible solutions on the debate on EU cohesion policy in a wider context. This includes discussions on achieving the ambitious goals of the EU Missions by 2030 – goals REA is helping achieve through its supportto over 2 400 EU-funded projects.

The European Week of Regions and Cities will also include other partner events and side events taking place in different European regions. Discover the programme, pick the event you wish to follow, and register online.
