What role for regional policies in an unequal Europe?

European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) / Scotland House Brussels

On Wednesday 9 October, the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) will mark the European Week of Regions and Cities with the 40th Anniversary Conference of European Regional Policy Research Consortium (EoRPA). Scotland House Brussels is delighted to host this conference, celebrating the anniversary of one of the longest running networks in Europe devoted to research and knowledge exchange on the design and implementation of regional development policies.
Professor John Bachtler, Director of EPRC will be joined by Derek Mackay, Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work, Jerzy Kwiecinski, Polish Minister of Investment and Economic Development, Dr. Philipp Steinberg, Undersecretary of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy, Duarte Rodrigues, Vice-President of the Portuguese Agency for Development and Cohesion and Johanna Osenius, Director of Regional Development at the Finnish Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.
The EPRC is one of the leading centres in Europe for the study of regional development and regional policy. Its research portfolio includes programmes on EU Cohesion Policy, European territorial development, EU Competition Policy and State aid, financial instruments and EU governance. The EPRC is mainly based at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Since 2017, EPRC has had a second base at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands.

Each year, EoRPA produces regional policy reports covering 30 European countries, together with a review and assessment of how policy thinking and practice in Europe is changing. The direction of regional policy is debated each year at a high-level EoRPA conference in Scotland for senior regional policymakers from 12 countries.
The event will take place from 09:30 to 13:00 and will be followed by a networking lunch. Registration will be from 08:45.
