We concluded our series of European Week of Regions and Cities sessions with an online talk on '#policylearning: inspiration & solutions' on 15 October. A recording is now available.

During this one-hour talk, you'll get a crash course in all the inspiration and solutions available through the Policy Learning Platform. Click to play the video and download the presentation.

Erwin Siweris, the Director of Interreg Europe, takes you through the basics of the programme. Learn more about Interreg Europe, our projects, and how we help regions improve their policies.

Magda Anagnostou, our Policy Learning Platform Coordinator, outlines what the Platform is how and it works. You will get an overview of the four key services available for you to make use of:

  • Expert support and tailored advice (policy helpdesk, online discussions, peer reviews)
  • Community to help you connect with peers across Europe
  • Knowledge hub full of inspiration and resources (policy briefs, webinars, news and reports)
  • Good practices collected in a database with 1900+ expert-validated tried and tested solutions

Get inspired by the Bulgarian peer review experience on structuring centres of excellence and competence.

Marc Pattinson, Thematic Expert on research and innovation for the Policy Learning Platform, tells you more about the peer reviews: how do peer reviews work now in the COVID-19 context, when most activities happen online? What are the main outcomes of a peer review? What are the benefits? How to apply for a peer review? Watch the video to find out - and browse further to submit your peer review application - the call is permanently open for applications!
