The 9th and last interregional learning event will be held in Berlin, Germany following the approved methodology for the peer review.

The one-day workshop will cover the topic "family businesses". In the past, the transfer of a business within the family was common. Although this type of transfer still proves to be more frequent than other forms, the number of transfers to third parties is increasing. This makes it important to consider the specifics of a family business, e.g. the different opinions and aspirations of the family members to a (internal or external) transfer. A high failure rate of succession among family members has serious implications for the economy of a region.

The partners will debate these challenges and elaborate recommendations with experts and Regional Stakeholder Group members.
