The peer review service

Regions all over Europe are tackling similar challenges. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for these issues, which is why the Policy Learning Platform offers regional policymakers the 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.

In addition to organising and moderating the meeting, thematic experts from the Policy Learning Platform put together the most suitable peers to well match the theme and the needs of the host region.
