Every year, the European Commission awards those EU-funded projects, which demonstrate excellence and new approaches in regional development. With the goal of inspiring other regions and project managers across Europe, participating projects are in the spotlight of communication activities at European level.
The REGIOSTARS are awarded to projects in five thematic categories (smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, urban development and a topic of the year).
In 2019, the REGIOSTARS are focussed on five areas that are crucial for the future of EU regional policy:
High-level academics will assess the submitted project applications and crown the winners.
In addition, the public will decide on its own winner through a public on-line vote and award the Public choice award to one of the projects.
