As part of the current work of ERSA and its members in reinforcing links between academics and policymakers, we are launching a series of keynote lecture series & workshops in the coming years, with the collaboration of the EC DG for Regional and Urban Policy.  The lectures are held at DG REGIO premises, Brussels, Belgium

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.
