Capitalising on the knowledge economy - EUROCITIES Economic development forum meeting

26/03/2018 - 28/03/2018 (Braga)


The 2018 spring EDF meeting will take place in Braga (Portugal), on 26-28 March.

The meeting will focus on the role of cities in the knowledge economy. EUROCITIES and the city of Braga invite members to attend and join the debate on how cities do shape the local economy in order to capitalise on the opportunities of the knowledge economy.

Cities' representatives will have the chance to participate to high-level panel debates, networking sessions and study visits to acquire and share information and practices. In the speed-networking sessions, the discussion will also focus on long-term investment and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Attendants will get insight in how to kickstart entrepreneurship and SME’s with programmes such as Startup Braga innovation hub, and into how cities can optimally participate and the knowledge economy.


The registration deadline is Monday 5 March.
