The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual Brussels-based four-day event during which officials from regions and cities' administrations, as well as experts and academics, can exchange good practices and know-how. The event focuses on topics in the field of regional and urban development. It is also an acknowledged platform for political communication in relation to the development of EU cohesion policy, raising the awareness of decision-makers about the fact that regions and cities matter in EU policy-making. There are four thematic clusters in this year's exhibition.
- Territorial Development
- The Future of Europe
- Education Culture and Youth
The EDP will be present at the European Week of Regions and Cities with a stand, which will be an "Open Data Point" for demonstration and discussion on the role of open data policies and the advantages that they bring to publishers and re-users alike.
