RegioStars Awards 2020: applications are open until 9th May 2020

Mar 26, 2020

The Regiostars are Europe’s award to EU-funded projects which demonstrate excellence and new approaches in regional development. The European Commission started the Regiostars Award in 2008, with the goal of inspiring other regions and project managers across Europe. Participating projects are in the spotlight of communication activities at European level.

As in the last editions, five categories (smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, urban development and a topic of the year) and a public choice award are up for grab every year. Under these categories, the following areas will be covered:
1. Industrial transition for a smart Europe (smart growth);
2. Circular Economy for a green Europe (sustainable growth);
3. Skills&Education for a digital Europe (inclusive growth);
4. Citizens engagement for cohesive European cities (urban development);
5. 30 years of Interreg: Youth empowerment for cooperation across borders (Topic of the Year).
The on-line application platform is open from 2 March to 9 May 2020.

The Guide for Applicants provides all the necessary information to become a winning project.

An independent jury of high-level academics will assess the submitted project applications and crown the winners during the festive RegioStars Awards ceremony taking place in Brussels in October 2020 during the European Week of Regions and Cities. The public will be also called to decide on its own favourite project through an online public vote system.
