The Enlargement Day is the European Committee of the Regions' (CoR) annual flagship event on EU enlargement policy dialogue and capacity-building, first held in 2015.
With the recent granting of candidate country status to Ukraine, Moldova, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, EU enlargement policy is now in sharp political focus. To celebrate 2023 as the European Year of Skills, all the seven sub-events of Enlargement Day also address this theme.
When a country joins the EU, local and regional authorities will have a key role in implementing EU legislation. The CoR – as the EU's expert body on multi-level governance and subsidiarity - is helping to prepare countries for EU accession.

The 2023 event is organized in co-operation with the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the EU.
