Sessions relevant to territorial RRI at the European Week of Regions and Cities

This year the European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC), the largest event of its kind dedicated to allowing regions and cities to showcase their work, is due to take place online. TeRRItoria itself took part in the EWRC last year with a session. The three thematic priorities in this year’s incarnation, which all events must focus on, are: Empowering Citizens, Cohesion and Cooperation, and Green Europe. The first two of these, it turns out, contain plenty of sessions relevant to territorial RRI and the topics TeRRItoria works on. Simply follow the links below to find ones that may be of interest to you.

Please note that the deadline to register for this year’s EWRC is the 27th of September. Registration requires two-factor verification (for example through receiving an SMS) and a guide to this is available at this link.
