Network of Regional Hubs for EU Policy Implementation Review (RegHub) - Pilot project  

Welcome to RegHub!

The Network of Regional Hubs (contact points), coordinated by the Committee of the Regions (CoR), wants to channel the experience of local and regional authorities more effectively into the EU’s policy making. During the pilot phase of the project (2019-2020) we will consult 20 selected regions[*] and collect feedback from them on the implementation of EU policy in 3 or 4 areas.

[*] The term "region" should be understood in the broadest sense as any territorial authority below the member state level that implements EU policy. It can therefore include communities, departments, Länder, provinces, counties, metropolitan areas, large cities or groups of smaller ones, large local authorities or groups of smaller ones, cross-border territories such as EGTCs and Euroregions.

 

Does your Region want to join RegHub?

A call for applications for the pilot phase of RegHub has been launched by Karl-Heinz Lambertz, CoR President, on 19 October 2018. The deadline for applications is Friday 30 November 2018 at midnight. Regions that want to apply to be part of RegHub should fill out this application form. If the application is successful, the region's contact person will be invited to a first workshop in Brussels end of January/February 2019 (the CoR shall cover your expenses for participating, in accordance with the applicable financial rules).

Should you have any question about RegHub or the application procedure, do not hesitate to contact us at: RegHub@cor.europa.eu.
