DG REGIO & ERSA Lecture Series 2015- 2016

A new series of academic lectures on key issues of regional policy

The idea of the presenter is “to explore the changing conceptions of the state (and the public sector more generally) and its role(s) in animating and curating innovation and development. It would distill the lessons from RIS3 and also look ahead to the post-2020 policy challenges”.

Lectures’ objective

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.
