The European Week of Regions and Cities

Each year the RSA takes a lead in partnering with the Commission and Committee of the Regions in organising the "University" workshops and a three-day student and early career Masterclass. Now, we seek your ideas for sessions in the "University".

The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is an annual four-day event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance. It is held in Brussels, organised by the Committee of the Regions and the European Commission's DGs for Regional Policy and Employment and brings together 6,000 local, regional, national and European decision-makers and academic experts in regional and local development.
