Access expert support

The platform is a space for continuous learning where you can tap into the know-how of experts and experience of peers. The support provided from this service will come from the experts, as well as the community members.

Describe the need for policy improvement in your region and let our experts take care of the rest - with the help of the growing policy learning community.

Are you looking for state of the art good practices in your policy field? Trying to figure out how to improve policies in your region? Want to know how others have tackled similar challenges?

This helpdesk provides policy advice on the four topics covered by the platform: research and innovation, SME competitiveness, low-carbon economy, and environment and resource efficiency. You can submit a request for guidance on how to improve the management and implementation of public policies in these topics. A platform thematic expert will reply and advise you on the best course of action to meet your needs.

Regions all over Europe are tackling similar challenges. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for these issues, which is why we offer you a chance to benefit from a tailor-made peer review. Selected peers from all over Europe are invited to the host region to examine the specific territorial context, and make recommendations based on their experience and expertise. The great thing about peer reviews is that you can be a peer receiving advice one day and providing insight the next time around. This is a true win-win exchange!

We organise comprehensive onsite visits that consist of analysing the regional situation among peers, discussing approaches, solutions and recommendations, drafting a strategic plan and receiving immediate feedback.

Contact us with your needs so that we can assess how to address them best. Please provide details on the challenge you wish to discuss (i.e. current policy, barriers encountered, possible solutions), the type of advice needed, and the type of peers you wish to invite (i.e. organisation, function, location.).

Only public authorities may request a peer review for their region, but any registered member can participate as a peer. To do so, please indicate your interest in your dashboard.
