Regional and urban policymakers have countless and varied tasks to encourage innovation, reduce carbon emissions, support small and medium-sized enterprises, optimise urban development, promote social inclusion and cooperation, improve transport, manage natural disasters… One of their key priorities is to promote economic development and to bring regions and citizens closer together. Because after all, solidarity makes for a stronger Union! The six stories in this album, based on real projects, illustrate the European Union’s role in reducing differences in standards of living and supporting... the regions in their development.
