A STOA study and briefing has now been published, reporting on the workshop on 'New Technologies and Regional Policy: Towards the Next cohesion policy Framework'. The European Parliament's Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA) Panel organised the workshop in Brussels on 16 October 2017. The objective was to provide input to the debate on the next EU cohesion policy, after 2020.
The workshop focused on the impact of new technologies at the European and regional levels, affecting EU cohesion policy and regional innovation-led growth. Members of the European Parliament, specialists from the European Commission, representatives of several regions, Member States and organisations made workshop contributions. ERRIN regions were amongst those that contributed to the study with concrete examples, and this was also part of our work towards the development of new EU programmes.
