European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is an annual Brussels-based event during which officials from regions and cities’ administrations, as well as experts and academics, exchange good practices and know-how in the field of regional and urban development.

It is also an acknowledged platform for political communication in relation to the development of EU cohesion policy, raising the awareness of decision-makers about the fact that regions and cities matter in EU policy-making. The European Week of Regions and Cities is the biggest European public event of its kind.

#MadeWithInterreg joint exhibition 

This year, 12 Interreg transnational programmes organise a joint Interreg exhibition stand together to show the benefits of transnational cooperation. Programme and project representatives demonstrate tangible examples of how transnational cooperation enables to exchange knowledge and build capacities, how it helps to solve challenges beyond borders and increases cohesion in Europe. A part of the exhibition is a unique collection of objects, which are tangible results of transnational cooperation in Interreg projects.
