Founded in 1992, the European Association of Development Agencies  (EURADA) unites professionals working on economic development across Europe. Additionally, it represents development agencies before the European Union institutions.

The association facilitates the cooperation among regional economic development practitioners, offering a space to network, plan common EU projects, cooperate, advocate, and participate at European level. Thus, EURADA serves as an international well-established facility to connect development agencies with each other, with Europe, and with the opportunities Europe has to offer.

Acknowledging the benefits of interregional cooperation, EURADA has been actively involved in exploring, testing and promoting innovative regional development practices since the very beginning. Operating as a dynamic platform, EURADA leverages its expertise to identify and disseminate best practices, facilitate knowledge exchange, and offer networking opportunities for its members.
