The European Committee of the Regions organised on 9 February 2016 in Brussels the conference "Boosting entrepreneurial spirit – pioneering regions and cities in Europe".

One of the current key challenges in Europe is renewing and stabilising economic growth. In order to truly achieve dynamic growth in Europe and remain competitive in the global economy, Europe must find new, innovative and creative solutions to its challenges.
This event focused on experiences from European Entrepreneurial Regions (EER) and potentially from others, showcasing the benefits of entrepreneurial spirit by answering the following questions:
  • What did the regions and cities do to become "entrepreneurial"?
  • What is the role of decision-makers and administrators at all governance levels in boosting an entrepreneurial mindset and spirit?
  • How can the positive results be shared and scaled up? Which EU tools and support are most effective?
  • How can a bottom-up process be shaped, initiated and supported?


Session 1: Fostering entrepreneurship and innovation

Session 2: Better regulation and reduction of administrative burden
