Helping Europe have better governance means having the right public policies in place and well-functioning legal, institutional and procedural arrangements for their implementation.
Our programme helps local, regional and national governments across Europe to develop and deliver better regional development policies in this field.
We create opportunities for sharing solutions to regional development issues, for exchanging good practices and for policy learning via our two pillars: our interregional cooperation projects and our Policy Learning Platform.
