8th Cohesion Forum

On 17 and 18 March 2022 the Forum will bring together some 2000 representatives of EU institutions, national, regional and local authorities from all Member States, social and economic partners, non-governmental organisations and representatives of the academic sector.

It will constitute a unique opportunity for stakeholders to reflect on the important role that cohesion policy plays in improving the well-being of all people living in Europe.

Indeed, cohesion policy is evolving to face the multiple challenge of delivering on its core objective set by the Treaty of making Europe more inclusive, competitive and resilient, while also fundamentally contributing to address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and engage in the green and digital transitions.
