"Regions and Cities catalyse Social Innovation" is a thematic seminar organised in the frame of the European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC) and will be moderated by ERRIN Director, Pirita Lindholm. Several experts in social innovation, local and regional authorities and EU policy makers will be brought together to discuss the best practices and learn from each other about European innovative initiatives taking place in cities.

It is aimed at presenting new R&I solutions, innovative products and best practices in response to societal challenges facing the regions and cities of Europe.   ​  If you are interested in attending, please register at the EWRC website - the seminar code is 10WS417​. Registrations will close on 27 September.
