Stakeholder info day in Brussels

European Commission is organising a Stakeholder info day on 8 December 2016, in Brussels. The aim of the event is twofold:

  • To facilitate networking, information exchange and partnerships of actors interested in addressing major societal challenges.

    This event will be an occasion for different stakeholders involved in green and blue infrastructures  and Heritage-led regeneration (mayors, planners etc.) with advanced plans and projects, the private sector (in the area of construction, landscape and building architecture, water management, insurance, etc.), civil society organisations, and research organisations to meet, discuss and interact with the coordinators of the selected large-scale demonstration projects, including those on cities as living-labs for nature and cultural heritage-based solutions.
