Article written by Marta Serrano – External Consultant for training programmes

The EURADA Summer School 2023 will take place in Brussels, from 4 to 6 July 2023.

This in-person three-day event aims to provide participants with a better understanding and overview of several topics such as Regional Innovation Valleys, Partnering for Regional Innovation (PRI), Intellectual Property Protection, Regional Cohesion Policies, Strategic Foresight, Internationalisation of Local Authorities and RDAs, Talent Attraction, and Women Empowerment in Business.

Are you a regional development practitioner or working for a regional development agencies and curious about the latest news on the above topics? Are you a person working on supporting innovation of companies from clusters, competence centres, industry associations, chambers of commerce, start-ups and incubators?

You still have time to join us next week in Brussels for the EURADA Summer School from 4 to 6 July, where we will face the above issues together!

Using a comprehensive approach to organisational improvement, we will examine the three key areas of People, Processes, and Products and explore many factors for success.

Participants can identify opportunities to improve and develop their own strategies to maximise their performance. An up-to-date learning programme, supported by methods of experience-sharing and topic discussion, able to convince stakeholders of the success of interregional and international cooperation programmes and to position oneself among the top European regions. Together we will discover the unique "selling" proposition that sets a territory apart from other regions in Europe. Industry, products, services, culture, nature, quality, and a holistic way of living that can turn regional profit.

We will observe how systems can be created to make regions and companies increasingly cosmopolitan, attractive and competitive, relying on well-qualified people from diverse backgrounds to achieve their goals.

Sessions will be run by international speakers such as Andreea Leru (ADR NORD-EST), David Jepson (ACH), Alfredo Coppola (Prospera Woman), Raluca Cibu-buzac (Luminspino) and EC officers Magda Cymerys (DG RTD - Policy Officer, Innovation Policy And Access To Finance), Eric Amaral Garcia (DG REGIO, Programme Assistant, Smart And Sustainable Growth), EUIPO experts Alberto Casado and Alessandro Corrado and the Joint Research Center delegate Cristian Matti, among many others.
