    Experts concerned about Commission’s proposal to change EU funding

On 11 July, Europe’s local and regional experts on the issue came together to discuss how the proposal could be changed to answer local needs. One of the main issues is the rigid limitation of freedom concerning the fields in which towns and regions are allowed to invest. Check our website regularly for more information.
