URBAN Intergroup next event – 18 June 2013
URBAN Intergroup together with DG REGIO will organise an event dedicated to a recently published study – “Urban development in the EU: 50 Projects Supported by the ERDF in 2007-2013” which will take place on Tuesday June 18th 9.00-10.45 in Conference centre A. Borschette (36 Froissart Str., 1040Brussels, room nr. 0D).
The study presents 50 projects which received ERDF investment and offers an information package for selected cities, with detailed information on projects and results. The study gathers a range of good urban practice, and represents a ‘state of play’ in how the cities have put local urban policies into action with ERDF investment from 2007-13. The cities highlighted reveal interesting ideas, solutions and cooperation or collaboration methods serving as inspiration for other urban areas and managing authorities. A detailed presentation of the study will be provided and will be followed by a panel discussion.
Registration – If you wish to attend, please send an e-mail to Gwzst3YzqzrjqqtEjh3jzwtuf3jz by Thursday 13th June and include your name, first name, date of birth and nationality (this information is needed for access to the building).

The URBAN Intergroup event will be followed by the URBACT launching event of a series of six new thematic reports “Cities of Tomorrow: Action Today”.
