Call for 16 twinning partners. Multi-level governance study in support of Europe 2020

The consortium I am part of as a consultant, lead by Spatial Foresight was commisioned by DG Regio to carry out a “Study on promoting multi-level governance in support of Europe 2020”. The study aims at generating lessons from policy experiences and at stimulating the learning and exchange between regions. As part of the study we are looking for 16 twinning partners (European regions or cities) interested in partnering with 8 case study regions on improving multi-level governance: DEADLINE 22 January 2014

The study focuses on two specific policy fields linked to the Europe 2020 Strategy, namely energy efficiency measures with a special focus on the existing building stock and social inclusion in urban areas. Four case studies under each policy field shall serve as basis for the mutual learning and exchange process. This process is accompanied by the consortium both by providing technical assistance, facilitation support and by analysing the cases and activities.
