Europe is currently experiencing the difficult task to overcome the crisis, intending, by means of the

Europe 2020 Strategy, to contribute to the growth and prosperity of the entire Union by reducing the

economic, social and territorial disparities. The seminar aims to address the changes that have been

recorded in the principles of economic, social and territorial cohesion, evaluation elements,

conditioning elements, distinguishing between efficiency – effectiveness, the connection with

the Europe 2020 Strategy and the way in which it responds to the formation of regions in Romania,

especially since the regionalization process will be completed by the end of this year.

Discussions will be focused on two topics: priorities concerning the changes deriving from the

principles of territorial, economic and social cohesion and converging aspects on the development

strategy. The content of the event will be designed to engage the audience including people who have

little or no previous experience of European work and funding, in order to raise their awareness

of the opportunities available, as well as experienced actors who face the challenging changes

of the future programming period 2014 -2020.



7 – 10 OCTOMBRIE 2013 - Brussels


The OPEN DAYS - 11th European Week of Regions and Cities 

will take place in Brussels from 7 to 10 October 2013. The

largest annual event devoted entirely to regional policy is

being once again jointly organised by the Committee of the

Regions and the European Commission's Directorate-General

for Regional and Urban Policy, in partnership with 200 regions

and cities from 30 countries. The partners list is now

available on line. A hundred workshops and debates will be

held in Brussels whilst another 200-300 local events are being organised all over Europe.

The 2013 edition is being organised under the slogan 'Taking off for 2020' focusing on regions' and

cities' commitment in preparing and delivering their cohesion policy programmes for the period

2014-2020, worth a total of EUR 345 billion in EU funding.

The OPEN DAYS is the biggest annual event on regional and urban development, offering around

6,000 local, regional, national and European decision-makers, experts, academia and business

representatives an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas. EU institutions, local authorities in

charge of the management of structural funds and regional policy beneficiaries will be provided

with a forum where they can exchange know-how and information on how to approach regional

and urban development in the next programming period.  It will also be an opportunity to capitalise

on the wealth of experiences and showcase results of the 2007-2013 programmes.

The event's agenda will focus on the EU's growth strategy - Europe 2020 - with 100 workshops

and debates structured around three thematic priorities:

  • Managing change 2014-2020

  • Synergies and cooperation

  • Challenges and solutions

This year the "100 EUrban solutions" exhibition will showcase good practice in urban development.

The case studies will be displayed in a range of different spaces in Brussels during the four days

including at the EU's Committee of the Regions, in the European Commission premises, as well as

other venues and outdoor public spaces in the European quarter.

The OPEN DAYS University, where academics, practitioners, EU officials and other interested

participants exchange views and test new academic concepts related to regional and urban policies,

will be extended to include a Master Class for selected PhD students and early career researchers

in the field of regional policy.

Following the success of last year's competition the 'Europe in my Region' photo competition 

will once again be organised by the European Commission and the presentation of the finalists of

the RegioStars Awards will be also on the agenda.​

will appoint one of its members to report and draft an opinion on the legislative proposal which is

then put to the vote during one of the CoRs' plenary. If it receives a majority vote it is adopted and

passed to the other EU institutions.

The CoR may also proactively adopt a position on a particular issue through an own-initiative opinion.
