Regio Stars 2015 competition

The European Commission launched the RegioStars 2015 competition – the eighth annual award – for the most inspiring and innovative regional development projects co-funded by the EU's Structural Funds, which will be presented on 13 October 2015 during the Week of European Regions and Cities (OPEN DAYS) in Brussels.

The Award Categories for 2015 are:

  • Smart Growth: Unleashing SME growth potential for a digital economy
  • Sustainable Growth: Mobilizing investments in energy efficiency for the benefit of citizens and society
  • Inclusive Growth: Integrating in society those at risk of social exclusion
  • CityStar: Transforming cities for future challenges.

For the 2015 awards, the selected finalists will be invited to attend the RegioStars 2015 Awards Ceremony which will take place in October 2015 in the frame of the OPEN DAYS. A trophy and a "RegioStars Winner certificate" will be presented to the winning projects by EU Commissioner for Regional Policy, Corina Creţu and the President of the RegioStars Awards jury. A short video is also produced on each winning project, which can be used for promotional purposes.
