Call for twinning partners - Multi-Level Governance in support for Europe 2020

Nordregio is searching for 16 regions or cities interested in participating in a partnership exercise. The exercise is part of eight case study regions within the study on multi-level governance in support of Europe 2020 financed by DG REGIO.

The aim of the study is to generate lessons learned from existing experience and to stimulate the learning and transfer between regions. The study focuses on two policy fields linked to the Europe 2020 Strategy; energy efficiency measures with a special focus on the existing building stock and social inclusion in urban areas. The study focuses on both the analysis and technical assistance/facilitation or transfer processes.

Nordregio is a project partner together with Spatial Foresight as Lead Partner organisation. Nordregio is involved in both the policy analysis and the facilitation of the knowledge transfer among participating stakeholders through dedicated events.

The Nordregio team would like to draw the attention of potential stakeholders in the Nordic countries and European Union on the recently launched call for applications. The project is looking to recruit 16 partners from European Cities or Regions to become partner with 8 case study regions on improving multi-level governance.

The deadline is 22 January 2014. The partnering over 12 months is accompanied by the consortium, which will provide technical assistance, facilitation support and analysis of the cases and networking.
