METREX held its Autumn Conference 2018 in Brussels on 11 and 12 October. It coincided with the EU Week of the Regions, which focused on the next round of EU programmes linked to (amongst others) the Cohesion Policies and the European Regional Development Fund.
Metropolitan Solutions – Translating policies into Actions on a Regional Level aimed to share solutions being implemented by METREX members in their regions.
The conference covered:
1. Setting the scene, which covered the context in which our members are working on the various EU projects and programmes.
2. Presentations of Metropolitan Solutions, which gave examples of all kinds from METREX members and beyond.
3. Reflecting on what is heard, during which the experiences of the network were shared.
Metropolitan Solutions were presented by METREX members as well as partnered organisations like Eurocities, Urban M and other Metropolitan Regions and Cities.
