North Rhine-Westphalia shapes the future – EU Regional Policy in more developed regions: EFRE.NRW has participated at the European Week of Regions and Cities (9-12 October 2023). 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 neutral platform to discuss common challenges for Europe's regions and cities by bringing together a diverse community of speakers and participants.
With over 7000 participants, 500 speakers and 220 workshops, the "European Week of Regions and Cities 2023" was again able to draw a very positive balance.
ERDF (EFRE) helped the region's transformation. At the European Week of Regions and Cities ERDF/JTF representatives showed how EU support makes the region fit for the future with stories of successful change and funding measures to shape the future through innovation, climate action and urban development, including in coal mining areas. Interactive parts allowed an exchange on experience and needs of regions towards future EU Regional Policy after 2028.
We would like to thank all visitors for their great interest, the many good conversations and inspiring discussions at our booth.
See you again in 2024!
Thanks to ERDF.NRW, numerous projects have been successfully implemented and have helped to drive structural change in the region. The map shows examples of some of these successful implementations.
