Joint CPMR-DG REGIO Conference on the contribution of Cohesion policy in delivering EU priorities
13 October 2016
The main objective of the conference for the CPMR is to show the extent to which Cohesion Policy supports and delivers EU priorities and that it is a policy in its own right.
This conference follows on from the conference ‘Investing in blue growth’ organised in Haarlem in February 2016 with the Dutch Presidency of the EU, which looked at Cohesion Policy as an investment policy.
Both conferences feed in to the CPMR’s reflection on post-2020 Cohesion Policy reform.
The core of the joint CPMR-DG REGIO conference will be the presentation of the CPMR member regions case studies.
Contributions and feedback from DG REGIO and other Commission services, as well as by the Committee of the Regions and other Cohesion experts will complete the programme. Commissioner Cretu is confirmed and will open the conference.
