18th European Week of Regions and Cities

The European Week of Regions and Cities is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to regional policy.

This year, the European Week of Regions and Cities will spread over three consecutive weeks in October, each dedicated to one timely topic:

  • 5-9 October: Empowering Citizens,
  • 12-16 October: Cohesion and cooperation,
  • 19-22 October: Green Europe, in cooperation with the Green Week.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the related health and safety measures, the majority of the 500 sessions will be in fully digital format. Among the exceptions are key events and workshops requiring interpretation, which are going to be organized in a hybrid format (online with a limited physical presence). Some events such as exhibitions and regional tastings can be either digital or physical.

Registration for the 18th European Week of Regions and Cities will open on 27 August 2020.

The event is a unique communication and networking platform, bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe. The European Week of Regions and Cities and its side events are aimed at Regional, local, national and european governement officials, as well as experts in the field of managing and evaluating cohesion policy programmes. Representatives of the private sector, citizens, academics also also most welcome to the event to express their views and contribute to the debate.

Further updates, the agenda and the registration link will be made available on the event’s website.
