The European Week of Regions and Cities is the largest Brussels-based cohesion policy event. This event which is now on its 20th session has done a lot to promote policy learning and the exchange of best practices over the last 19 years. This year the event will provide an opportunity for partners and participants to debate and exchange knowledge on four themes: green transition, territorial cohesion, digital transition, and youth empowerment.

We are pleased to inform you that Innova-FI will participate in the 20th session of the European Week of Regions and Cities by facilitating an online workshop titled "Financial instruments for innovation and its social-economic impact in regional ecosystems". The workshop will take place on 13 October at 11:30h (Europe/Brussels Time).

This workshop will cover four different subjects: The lessons learned and Innova-FI's action plans, with a special emphasis on activities developed for economic recovery and the cohesion plan; How FIs are used to improve access to finance, and how to make the right framework for social-economic growth; How ethical finance actors can be key partners of the EU concerning the Social Economy Action Plan; And the project INFINITY and its innovative methodology to design FIs for relevant stakeholders. 

With this extensive scope of topics and shared knowledge, Innova-FI partners hope to bring you an immersive and rich experience counting with the participation of several speakers and in sync with the EWRC theme of Territorial Cohesion!
