What is it?

The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy.

It has grown to become a unique communication and networking platform, bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe, including politicians, administrators, experts and academics. Over the last 19 years, it has done much to promote policy learning and the exchange of good practice.

In 2021, the second digital edition, reached a record number of almost 18.000 registered participants and 300 sessions over a week, involving more than 590 partners.

What is the purpose of the EURegionsWeek?

  • To discuss common challenges for Europe's regions and cities and examine possible solutions by bringing together politicians, decision-makers, experts and practitioners of cohesion policy, as well as stakeholders from business, banking, civil society organisations, academia, the EU institutions and the media;
  • To provide a platform for capacity-building, learning and exchange of experience and good practice for those implementing EU cohesion policy and managing its financial instruments;
  • To facilitate cooperation and networking between regions and cities;
  • To feed into the debate on EU cohesion policy in a wider context, including recent research and views from third countries and international organisations.
