In transforming EU regions into more innovative places and promoting diversification through new path development there is a strong role to be played by the sub-regional level. As it is essential to capture evolving needs in their own place-specific dimension and not just through a centralized vision.

On the one hand, local administration has an important role to play to create synergies between technologies, knowledge, skills and so on. On the other hand, local administration helps developing the business-led economic development.

This unique approach within the boundaries of the Interreg Europe RELOS3 program can help turning cities and local regions into innovation drivers around emerging strategic themes/sectors that are expected to offer broad business and job opportunities in the years to come.

Final High Level Event

This theme and more will be our concern during the Final High Level Event on Wednesday the 12th of May. Lead partner the municipality of Sabadell (Spain) and copartner the municipality of Emmen (the Netherlands) of this project, has prepared an agenda to share experiences about the policy changes that are necessary in relation to these developments and what those developments imply to the whole context of cooperation on a local, regional, national and European level.

From this point of view, we would like to invite you to this meeting to hear about the Action Plans of all partners and share your thoughts and experiences. In addition, we would like to ask you to also invite your collaborating partners and stakeholders to this meeting.
