International Workshop ‘Cohesion Policy: evidence-based lessons for digital and green recovery in Europe’

Date: 24/09/2021

Venue: Online

This workshop explores the opportunities and challenges triggered by the digital and green transitions in Europe and its regions. The Recovery Plan and Next Generation EU are reshaping the entire EU policy landscape towards a common purpose: a digital, green and inclusive recovery from Covid-19. Cohesion Policy – the key development policy of the Union – takes centre stage in this historical opportunity to ‘build back better’ to benefit all citizens and regions. Solid evidence on ‘what works in practice’ and a truly inter-disciplinary approach are needed to inform, guide and shape a new generation of regional and industrial policies able to deliver on this ambitious agenda. High-level speakers from a diverse set of fields and institutions will engage in an evidence-based debate on how Next Generation EU and the EU Cohesion Policy could support a digital, green and inclusive recovery in all EU regions. What is (and what should be) the role of data and evaluation for policy learning? How can we address the challenges for green and digital recovery in less developed regions? What can we learn from the experience of 50 years of Cohesion Policy to inform and shape new evidence-based interventions?


The workshop will take place online, zoom - CET/UTC+1 time
Registration is free but mandatory. Registration link
