About Us

Started in 2001 as an informal network, ERRIN is a well-established Brussels-based platform of around 120 regional stakeholder organisations from more than 20 European countries, most of whom are represented by their Brussels offices.

Our members are mainly regional authorities, universities, research organisations, chambers of commerce and clusters. They drive the agenda and the priorities of the whole network by taking an active role within the Working Groups or in the Management Board.

Through our 13 Working Groups, ERRIN works with research and innovation in a very comprehensive way, promoting triple and quadruple helix cooperation approaches and the importance of regional innovation ecosystems.
