The European and International Affairs Sector of Liguria Region aims at promoting the knowledge of the funding programmes directly managed by the European Commission on the topics of major interest for Liguria Region through the organisation of training and information events and courses, ensuring the participation and inclusion of Ligurian stakeholders and citizens. The response to the calls for tenders of various European programmes allows the Sector, and consequently the Liguria Region, to create synergies with the stakeholders including the University of Genoa, the Municipalities, in-house companies, and with the other actors of the European territory in order to implement projects focused on relevant issues, such as social inclusion, sustainable territorial development, green infrastructures, climate change adaptation.

The dissemination of key themes promoted by the European Commission, such as sustainability, social inclusion and beauty, has found its concretisation in the event “The New European Bauhaus in Liguria – identity| inspiration| interaction| ideas| initiatives”, organised in June 2022, with the aim of promoting the exchange of knowledge and launching a path of reflection and innovation on the territory’s identity. In addition to the integration of New European Bauhaus principles in territorial planning, the Sector aims at the dissemination of transversal competences (“NEB skills”) considered fundamental to keep young people and the working-age population as a whole up-to-date with labour market evolutions, such as green skills or education in planning and entrepreneurial mentality. The topic is of particular relevance in 2023 (European Year of Skills) and it is fertile ground for the Sector’s cooperation with the academic world (in particular the University of Genoa) and the private sector. Thanks to the restart of the activities of its Office in Brussels, the European and International Affairs Sector aims at identifying and consolidating the essential institutional relations for the Liguria Region with the European Institutions and with the European networks of which the Region is already a member, including EUREGHA, ERRIN, NECSTouR.
