As in previous years, the RSA’s European Foundation (RSA Europe) was a key partner during the #EURegionsWeek, a major annual events programme dedicated to regional policy during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, to implement European Union cohesion policy and to present case studies of local and regional governance. In addition, the events also offered ample opportunities for knowledge exchange between academics and policymakers. In response to the Covid-19 crisis and restrictions put in place around the world and to limit the spread of the virus, this year the European Week of Regions and Cities was held as a virtual-only event.
The RSA Europe was involved in a number of #EURegionsWeek sessions: 3 #EURegionsWeekCollege sessions, 10 #EURegionsWeekUniversity sessions and the Q&A session.
The recording of these sessions are now available on the REPLAY section of the event web:
