The Committee of the Regions and the European Commission to create a regional knowledge platform

The Committee of the Regions and the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation have made a commitment to strengthening the role of the regions as drivers of research and innovation, thus contributing to growth and job creation in Europe. For this reason, the Committee of the Regions has agreed to work to create a Regional Knowledge Platform with the aim of bringing together the knowledge and experience of the European Union’s regions.

This platform should enable the determination of investment in education, research and innovation, increase its territorial focus and guarantee greater synergy to boost productivity, growth and job creation.
