EIPA Summer School on EU Economic Integration and Local & Regional Development


Barcelona, 27 June – 1 July 2016

Over the course of this Summer School the main aspects and challenges of economic integration, the aftermath of the financial crisis, and regional and urban development strategies will be discussed and analysed using real life business cases.

Additionally, the way in which territories can steer their own economic destiny and boost growth through dedicated policies and drivers, while at the same time enhancing territorial cohesion and making smart use of the available EU supportive resources will be illustrated. This will be achieved again by using examples – in particular, results-orientated good practices that make use of different EU funds.

This practical and interactive programme will conclude with an examination of seven steps to achieve public management excellence as a basis for territories’ competitiveness and success.

This annual Summer School is a unique opportunity for participants to exchange with and learn from leading-edge experiences and to receive practical instruments and advice.
