This conference brings together different thematic strands of the European Committee of the Regions' work on entrepreneurship policy, including:

  • easing SME access to finance,
  • supporting start-ups and scale-ups, and
  • creating smart regulation

Focus will be on how regions and cities can best strengthen their entrepreneurial ecosystems and formulate sustainable solutions to make their business environments more robust and future-proof. This includes for instance methods for better policies, territorial foresight, tools to foster dialogue between regional and local decision-makers, actors of regional and local entrepreneurial ecosystems and EU institutions, as well as identifying the components of a toolbox of good practices for developing strong, resilient and agile regional and local entrepreneurial ecosystems.

Furthermore, the event will also provide concrete tips and advice to potential applicants for the European Entrepreneurial Region EER 2019 edition.
