Assembly of European Regions

The Assembly of European Regions (AER) is the largest independent network of regional authorities in wider Europe, bringing together regions from 35 countries along with 15 interregional organisations. 


Established in 1985, AER is a forum for interregional co-operation and a lobbyist for regional interests on the European stage: AER was a key player in the creation of the advisory bodies to the Council of Europe (Congress of Local and Regional Authorities) and the European Union (Committee of the Regions).


ERRIN is pleased to be collaborating with such a well-established network as the AER. ERRIN can complement AER’s overall experience of the regional dimension in Europe by adding its research and innovation knowledge.
