Event to increase knowledge with concrete regional cases
Setting the scene
AER has been providing information about funding, and in particular EU funding to its regions for many years. From the use of Structural Funds for Entrepreneurship, Health or Infrastructure to information about green investments, impact investments or long term investments, AER is continuously supporting it's members identify and efficiently use funding sources for their regional development. Following the 2016 AER event on the European Fund for Strategic Investments, Committee 1 President Jean-Luc Vanraes expressed the will to develop further activities on this topic.
Description of the action
AER organised a conference on sustainable financing for regions, which presented political issues related to impact investments, green investments and long term investments. These strategic aspects of regional development are not mere tools but are part of a regional development plan, which looks at private funding to leverage public resources.
The AER Secretariat published a series of articles about the European Fund for Strategic Investments as well as other funding opportunities.
