16 December 2014: AEBR participated in the CoR Seminar on the Future of Cohesion Policy beyond 2020:


On 16 December 2014, a seminar on the future of Cohesion Policy beyond 2020, key questions and challenges took place at the CoR. 

Jens Gabbe, Chair of the AEBR Advisory Committee, took part in this event on behalf of our organisation. After the opening addresses, Thomas Wobben, Director for Horizontal Policies and Networks at the CoR introduced the topic. 

The following discussions took place in form of a "World Café". In three parallel round-table discussions, the participants discussed for 30 minutes each the following main topics: 
1. Gaps, trends and challenges
2. Effectiveness, efficiency and governance of Cohesion Policy
3. Models of growth, cohesion and well-being. 

In the final plenary discussion, the chairs of the individual discussion groups reported about the results. Two further seminars on this topic will be organised in July and September 2015, and the results of all these seminars will flow into a study. 

More information will follow.
