Posted by Claudia Singer, Friday, 11th August 2017 @ 2:47 pm
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Tuesday, 10th October 2017 @ 2:30 pm - Tuesday, 10th October 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Date: 10 October 2017 | 14.30-17.00
Venue: Room 1B at Centre Borschette, Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Bruxelles, Belgium

The workshop “Better institutions for more resilient regions and cities” aims at connecting territorial cohesion and multi-level governance with the need for increased institutional capacity. This includes three main strands:

  • Increasing the administrative capacity in general, especially in Eastern and Southern Europe;
  • Better spending of EU Funds;
  • Transnational, interregional and macro-regional forms of cooperation for institutional learning

In manifold contexts, capacity development is to be seen as a pre-condition for regional development.
The workshop focuses on horizontal and transnational aspects of public administration and intends to
explore its territorial and international dimension. It looks at how to achieve results and accountability,
policy making, structures and processes, human resources, and service delivery. It will also focus on how
European Structural and Investment Funds contribute to increasing the administrative capacity of
Member States, and how they foster an exchange among them. The following questions should i.a. be

  • How do EU funds and tools support administrative capacity building on national, regional, and municipal level? How does the general implementation of EU projects and programmes affect the levels of institutional capacity?
  • How does transnational and interregional exchange of experience foster administrative capacity development?
  • How can trust of citizens in administrations be enhanced?

The workshop is organised in the framework of the European Week of Cities and Regions by Interact and Priority Area 10 "Institutional Capacity and Cooperation". The workshop is the kick-off for the set-up of a network of funding institutions supporting institutional capacity-building (Thematic Objective 11).
