As part of the current work of ERSA and its members in reinforcing links between academics and policy makers, we are launching a series of key note lecture series & workshops in the coming years, with the collaboration of the EC DG for Regional and Urban Policy.

The purpose is to make available to a broader range of policymakers important research in the context of the preparation for post-2020 EU Cohesion Policy Proposals. The first lecture started on 13 November 2015.
