Open Days 2015 - European Week of Regions and Cities
Open Days 2015
The OPEN DAYS 2015 will be a forum for national and regional managing authorities, beneficiaries and EU institutions to exchange information and facilitate networking on novel approaches for implementing the funds.
The EU's Open Days conference invites participants from civil society organisations, local government, academics, and EU associations to discuss and exchange information about the EU's regional policy and the use of European funds for regional development.
OpenDays 2015 will be structured around three thematic priorities with the headline of 'Europe's regions and cities: partners for investment and growth'
- 'Modernising Europe': The regions in the energy Union and the single digital market
- 'Regions open for business': SME development, innovation and job creation
- 'Places and spaces': Urban and rural development; urban-rural integration
Under the three sub-themes, participants are invited to address challenges and solutions related to management and implementation issues as well as the cross-border, inter-regional or transnational dimension.
