Bringing together 10 partners from eight countries including Spain, Italy, Romania, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Poland and Wales – Cohes3ion is a three-year project which aims to promote business growth and job creation across Europe through best practice and policy.

More specifically, the project aims to integrate local and regional priorities into shared policies to increase their impact and performance, while strengthening links within Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) sectors across both public and private sector businesses.

The partners were introduced to the Cohes3ion project leaders and given an insight into socioeconomic data, an overview of the project goals, and a selection of industry related case studies to explore.

They will reconvene for a second meeting in January 2020, due to take place in Ruhr, Germany.
