The C4BI partners with the support of the Committee of Regions (CoR) invited PREFORMA to attend the conference “Local and regional governance approaches for innovation, economic development and cooperation”, taking place in Brussels on December 17, 2014.

 

This event will be an unique opportunity for sharing and debating diverse public procurement approaches and instruments that can impact the capacity of local and regional authorities for promoting innovation both internally and within their local communities. In addition, this conference will also discuss the influence and efficiency of authorities to pursue local economic development and social well-being.

 

A high-level panel of experts from the European Commission and project coordinators from different EU-funded projects will also participate in the conference.

 

Conference program is available here.

Conference admission is free of charge but with limited sitting. Please register no later than December, 11, 2014, by filling in the registration form available here.
