Four thematic workshops across Europe
Through November and December, the Policy Learning Platform organised four thematic workshops in Sofia (Bulgaria), Manchester (UK), Bucharest (Romania), and Hamburg (Germany). These events brought together participants to learn about good practices, regional policy developments, and the services offered by the Policy Learning Platform. To faciliate networking, the workshops were held back-to-back with other targeted conferences like the Startup Summit, ETC university, and the Polis network annual conference.
Attended by around 40 project leaders, regional and managing authorities, thematic experts and representatives from the Policy Learning Platform, each workshop was dedicated to one of the priorities of the programme.
