Since the ongoing financial crisis and the recent events such as Brexit
and raising voice of populism questioning the integrity, stability and
future of the EU, the focus turns to addressing societal challenges and
changing of current approaches and thinking. The transition requires
incremental and multiple changes, for which engagement and
governance at local level is crucial. As a response to recent political
events, EU policy makers put hopes in regional capacities. EU28 consist
of 270 regions and 507 million people, whereas the governments of cities
and regions manage two-thirds of all public investments, while
three-quarters of EU policies and legislation target regions, with an
immediate effect on citizens lives. Several EU initiatives such as
European Metropolitan Authorities (EMA) Declaration and initiatives
under the scope of the European Committee of the European Regions
support the development of EU cities and regions. These initiatives
indicate that cities/regions are recognized as forerunners in building
sustainable innovation (SI) ecosystems through broad stakeholder
engagement and partnerships. This policy brief provides an overview of the current EU initiatives supporting the development of cities and
regions, including examples of good SI practice based on the
collaborative models that showing the potential of regional schemes.
