The largest European regions event will take place throughout 3 weeks, in a mostly online format and with 70+ Interreg events - Register by 27 Sept

The 18th edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual event dedicated to cohesion policy, where cities and regions have the opportunity to showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs and prove the importance of cooperation at local and regional level for good European governance.

For the first time, this event will be held during three weeks and in a mostly online format, each week dedicated to a different topic:

  • 5-9 October: Empowering Citizens

  • 19-22 October: Green Europe

Interreg programmes join forces to celebrate 30 years of Interreg
