Annual Conference of the European Entrepreneurial Regions

  • 24/01/2018 - 10:45
Building the entrepreneurial ecosystems of the future Tying together different thematic strands of the European Committee of the Regions' work on entrepreneurship policy – including easing SME access to finance, supporting start-ups and scale-ups, and creating smart regulation – the conference will address the comprehensive topic of how regions and cities can best strengthen their entrepreneurial ecosystems and formulate sustainable solutions to make their business environments more robust and future-proof. It will explore methods to establish an evidence-base for successful entrepreneurship policies, create a dialogue between regional and local decision-makers, actors of regional and local entrepreneurial ecosystems and EU institutions, and identify a toolbox of good practices that can help strengthen regional and local entrepreneurial ecosystems. Particular attention will be paid to supporting policy design through territorial foresight, in order to help regions and cities increase the resilience of their ecosystems against future shocks while ensuring the agility necessary to capitalise on emerging opportunities Please find the agenda and more information here.
