The CoR's Europe 2020 Monitoring Platform, a group of over 160 cities and regions from the 27 EU Member states, monitors how Europe 2020 is implemented on the ground, promoting the exchange of good practices.
The Platform looks at whether the EU, national, regional and local levels of government work in partnership to achieve the Europe 2020 goals. It also monitors whether these goals are applied in a manner that takes into account territorial differences across the EU.
The Platform is mobilised to support the CoR in the preparation of the mid-term review of Europe 2020, due in 2014.
