Dear Madam/ Sir,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the 4th EU Macro-Regional Strategies Week 2023, which will take place from 24 to 28 April 2023 in hybrid format. The event is organised by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy.      

This year’s edition follows the motto “Transform to Thrive” centred around three themes: Energy, Skills and Funding.

Programme overview 


From 24 April in the morning until 26 April midday, digital stakeholder sessions will cover the three themes. 


In the afternoon of 26 April, Elisa Ferreira, Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, will officially open the EU MRS Week joined by the four EU MRS presidencies. Plenary sessions around the three themes will follow from the afternoon of 26 April until 27 April. 


On the morning of 28 April, the 15th High Level Group (HLG) meeting will be livestreamed to follow the discussions.
