NMP-REG will be a guest project during the European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to regional policy and scheduled on 15 October from 11.30 AM to 01.00 PM through the Zoom platform. The event has grown to become a unique communication and networking platform, bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe, including their political representatives, officials as well as experts and academics. Over the last 17 years, it has done much to promote policy learning and exchange of good practices.

More specifically, NMP- REG will take part in a workshop on the future of clusters in the innovation ecosystem: The workshop capitalises learnings of the 3 Interreg Europe projects involving more than 20 European regions: CLUSTERIX 2.0, ClusterFY and NMP-REG. Over the past 4.5 years, these three projects have considered how innovation ecosystems can help to address complex challenges at regional and national level. Each with their own specific focus, they consider the role of clusters in fostering competitiveness, technology and knowledge transfer in priority sectors for regional development.

At the workshop, called “Future clusters in innovation ecosystems”, concrete results of these projects will be summarized. It will be promoted debate on the role of clusters in regional development, now and in the future. Speakers represent high-level regional and national policy makers, the European Commission and the Interreg Europe programme.
