The 20th edition of EURegionsWeek under the motto New Challenges for Europe’s cohesion is ready to take off in a couple of weeks, from 10 to 13 October. 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 practices. 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.

This year’s hybrid programme includes a virtual exhibition and sessions online and onsite dedicated to:

  • Green transition
  • Territorial Cohesion
  • Digital transition
  • Youth empowerment

Over 1000 speakers will take the floor from all over the EU and beyond during 386 hours of interactive conferences spread over four days, and more than 80 video clips will show stories and testimonials about concrete projects. Registering for a session on the onsite programme gives access to the online session too, but physical seats are ensured on a first-come, first-served basis.
The extent of physical presence will be subject to the evaluation of COVID sanitary measures closer to the event.

Access the event online to view the programme and register to the sessions.
