In the Forem training centre in Mons, Eric trains young professionals on heat pump installation and maintenance. Since the past two years, the centre has received daily requests by companies who want to train their technicians in renewable energies, and the requests have even increased after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine and the rise of energy prices. Upskilling and reskilling the EU workforce is a crucial challenge for the EU, in particular to be able to achieve the green and the digital transitions, through the skilled workers that are needed to drive the change. 2023 was declared the "European Year of Skills", in order to step up skills development on the ground and have at least 60% of adults in trainings every year and at least 78% in employment by 2030. EU cohesion funds invested 4 million € in the Forem training centre in Mons and 200 million € for the 23 Forem training centres of the Wallonia Region. With a budget of more than €99 billion for 2021-2027, the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) is the main EU instrument for investing in people. #EuropeanYearOfSkills #GreenTransition #CohesionPolicy Follow us on: https://cor.europa.eu/en/engage/Pages/cohesion.aspx

Ladies and Gentlemen, distinguished members of our Institute, dear friends and supporters! The year 2022 is coming to an end. A year with some light and unfortunately a lot of shadows. When we thought that we had all survived the corona pandemic together, a war broke out in full force across Europe. The attack on Ukraine turned the entire European security structure upside down. Then there is also inflation and an energy crisis. But with all this terror, one can also see light: Europe is able to act together and to find solutions to crises together. Since many challenges, such as migration, directly affect European regions and municipalities, it is important to empower regions and communities in Europe. I am also convinced that the reconstruction of Ukraine will primarily take place through the regions. Decentralization means strength! For us as the Institute of the Regions of Europe, 2022 was a successful year: Several events - such as a specialist conference on digitalization in the regions - were successfully carried out. We were a cooperation partner for the first time at the international 4Gamechangers Festival. The 18th Salzburg Europe Summit broke all records with over 850 guests - almost 400 of them young people - and 65 international speakers. Several new collaborations in Austria, but also in Southeastern Europe, have proven to be very fruitful and will be continued in 2023. We will continue our international internship program, through which we were able to welcome more than 20 students from all over Europe every year. I am particularly pleased that in 2022 we were again able to win new municipalities, regions and companies as members. For 2023 we have again made a comprehensive work program. With strong European cooperation, we want to make a small contribution to overcome the crises in Europe. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all very much. Thank you for your loyalty and support without which our work would not be possible. On behalf of the entire IRE team, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays with your loved ones. For the new year much success, health and for Europe: peace! Yours, Franz Schausberger

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, geschätzte Mitglieder, liebe Freunde und Unterstützer des Instituts der Regionen Europas! Das Jahr 2022 geht zu Ende. Ein Jahr mit etwas Licht und leider viel Schatten. Als wir dachten, dass wir alle gemeinsam die Corona-Pandemie gut überstanden haben, brach mit voller Wucht ein Krieg über Europa herein. Der Angriff auf die Ukraine hat die gesamte europäische Sicherheitsstruktur auf den Kopf gestellt. Dazu kommen die Inflation und eine Energiekrise. Doch bei all diesem Schrecken kann man auch Licht sehen: Europa ist fähig, gemeinsam zu agieren und auch gemeinsam Lösungen für Krisen zu finden. Da viele Herausforderungen, wie Migration, die europäischen Regionen und Gemeinden direkt betreffen, ist es unbedingt notwendig, die Regionen und Gemeinden in Europa zu stärken. Ich bin auch davon überzeugt, dass der Wiederaufbau der Ukraine vor allem über die Regionen erfolgen wird. Dezentralisierung bedeutet Stärke! Für uns als Institut der Regionen Europas verlief das Jahr 2022 erfolgreich: Mehrere Veranstaltungen - wie eine Fachkonferenz Digitalisierung in den Regionen - konnten erfolgreich durchgeführt werden. Beim internationalen 4Gamechangers Festival waren wir zum ersten Mal Kooperationspartner. Der 18. Salzburg Europe Summit sprengte mit über 850 Gästen - davon fast 400 Jugendliche - und 65 internationalen Referentinnen und Referenten alle Rekorde. Mehrere neue Kooperationen in Österreich aber auch Südosteuropa erwiesen sich als sehr fruchtbar und werden auch 2023 fortgesetzt. Unser internationales Praktikantenprogramm, über welches wir auch dieses Jahr wieder mehr als 20 Studentinnen und Studenten aus ganz Europa am IRE begrüßen durften, werden wir auch kommendes Jahr fortsetzen. Ganz besonders freut es mich, dass wir auch 2022 wieder neue Gemeinden, Regionen und Unternehmen als Mitglieder gewinnen konnten. Für 2023 haben wir uns wieder ein umfassenden Arbeitsprogramm vorgenommen. Mit umfassenden europäischen Kooperationen wollen wir einen kleinen Beitrag leisten, die Krisen zu bewältigen. Ich darf mich an dieser Stelle ganz herzlich bei Ihnen allen bedanken. Bedanken für Ihre Treue und Unterstützung ohne die unsere Arbeit nicht möglich wäre. Im Namen des gesamten IRE-Teams wünsche ich Ihnen allen frohe Weihnachten und schöne Feiertage im Kreise Ihrer Liebsten. Für das neue Jahr viel Erfolg, Gesundheit und für Europa: Frieden! Ihr, Franz Schausberger

Paweł Adamowicz was the long-serving Mayor of the City of Gdańsk when he was murdered in January 2019 whilst carrying out his public duties. The Mayor Paweł Adamowicz Award represents a strong signal of hope for all elected representatives, officials and ordinary citizens who, despite the risks, live to make democracy work at a local level by supporting better and more open communities. It is a partnership between the City of Gdańsk, the European Committee of the Regions, which Mr Adamowicz was a member of, and the International Cities of Refuge Network (ICORN). The municipality of Michałowo in Poland has been honoured with the Mayor Paweł Adamowicz Award for the help it has provided refugees at the border with Belarus. The award, which was created to promote the legacy built up by Paweł Adamowicz during his 20 years as mayor of Gdańsk, was announced at the European Solidarity Centre in Gdańsk on 13 January and will be presented to the Mayor of Michałowo Marek Nazarko at the plenary session​ of the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels on 8 February.

To achieve its vision to become one of the most attractive and competitive regions in Europe by 2025, the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region put in place eleven fields of action that promote sustainability across policy areas, such as sustainable and needs-based mobility, regional innovation promotion, regional energy transition and education of the future. This report offers guidance on how the metropolitan region could harness the SDGs as an integrated framework to address its main challenges, including climate change, the impacts of digitalisation on the labour market, territorial disparities among urban and rural areas as well as the co-ordination of actors and policies across three different federal states, notably on funding.

Thanks to the European project “ I know How” the taboo of remaining or returning to work with cancer is being broken down. The European project, together with patients, companies and caregivers has developed a programme to help people with long-term illnesses return to or stay in their jobs. Amongst others, the project has developed a leaflet which explains to patients and employers what to do if cancer has been diagnosed. The project supported by the Interreg 2 Seas programme aims to increase by 15% the number of patients with long-term illnesses who return to work.

This new episode of the Stories from the regions takes us to Belgium where the non-profit organisation Zinneke, with the help of Brussels Capital Region and the European Regional Development Fund provided by European Union, has acquired and is in the process of renovating the building at 13 Place Masui in Schaerbeek in Brussels’ north district. The aim was to find a permanent anchor point for the organisation, which has been responsible for organising the Zinneke Parade every two years since 2000. This production centre is a huge laboratory where Zinneke is now able to further develop its socio-artistic initiatives as a venue for sharing spaces, tools, equipment, knowledge and skills. While the renovation works on the building at Place Masui are to be completed by 2024, Zinneke also offers long-term metal training and gives home to a resource centre that recycles industrial waste. By stirring up public space in the city and being a place of encounters inside and outside of its premises, Zinneke intends to meet social and cultural challenges artistically and collectively. https://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/en/projects/Belgium/un-lieu-dancrage-pour-lassociation-socio-artistique-zinneke-a-bruxelles and https://www.zinneke.org/ For more information on EU regional policy, please visit our website: https://europa.eu/!Yy67HF Follow us on: - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EUinmyregion - Twitter: https://twitter.com/euinmyregion - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/euinmyregion/

Human-centred design is a methodology for creative problem solving which puts the experience of the client or end-user at the core of designing products, services and systems. The tools it encompasses, from customer journey mapping to prototyping, along with behavioural insights, are increasingly being used to improve the design and delivery of public services. This webinar will bring together speakers from employment services, the design community, researchers, and public officials for a moderated discussion on the opportunities and challenges for using human-centred design and behavioural insights specifically to improve outcomes in local employment services.
