29th AER General Assembly: thematic session
28 May 2014
Are regions at the heart of a New Deal for Europe?
On Wednesday 28 May will take place the thematic General Assembly which will try to answer this question. This interactive debate, co-organised with the Dolnoslaskie region, will focus on the future of regions in Europe on two specific levels: a first round table will discuss the future institutional definition of regions and a second round table will explain how regions can be the engine of economic growth.
Round table n°1: Institutional New Deal with the regions?
This round table session will focus on the future of regions given the fact that territories, their demographic outlook and also their governance structures are changing. Are we heading towards a new definition of regions and territories? Does subsidiarity still make sense?
Round table n°2: Regions at the heart of economic growth
This round table session will bring together business and policy makers and focus on how regions can support local businesses and entrepreneurship, while also taking into account what businesses expect from policy makers. Panelist will discuss to what extent “economic subsidiarity” can help in creating jobs.
Please, find below the agenda of the session.
What are your views on these questions? What are your experiences? We look forward to sharing on these topics in Wroclaw!
As you will see from the programme of events below, there are a number of different meetings taking place; please note that attendance may be restricted for some of these.
