The European Committee of the Regions has launched the 2017 edition of the European Entrepreneurial Region (EER) award, which is open to all EU regions and cities that are ready to implement an ambitious strategy to support their SMEs and entrepreneurs.
Each year, the EER label is awarded to three EU territories. Its aim is not to reward past events but to encourage future action to promote entrepreneurship and cooperation on all levels of government as well as different stakeholders. This makes the EER initiative not only open to regions and cities that are already among the top performers, but also to territories that have developed an ambitious strategy allowing them to reinvigorate the local economy.
The implementation of the prize-winning regional strategies will be monitored throughout the award year by the EER jury, which is composed of CoR members, representatives of EU institutions and social partners.
The deadline for the submission of applications is 18 March 2016. The application form and further information are available on the EER web page: www.cor.europa.eu/eer.
