RegioStars Awards 2019: The European Awards for innovative projects


The call for RegioStars Awards 2019 is open! Every year, the European Commission awards those EU-funded projects, which demonstrate excellence and new approaches in regional development. With the goal of inspiring other regions and project managers across Europe, participating projects are in the spotlight of communication activities at European level.  The official award ceremony will take place during the annual European Week of Regions and Cities in October 2019.

The REGIOSTARS are awarded to projects in five thematic categories. This year, the REGIOSTARS are focused on five areas that are crucial for the future of EU regional policy:

  • Smart growth: Promoting digital transformation
  • Sustainable growth: Connecting green, blue and grey
  • Inclusive growth: Combatting inequalities and poverty
  • Urban development: Building climate-resilient cities
  • Topic of the year 2019: Modernising health services

Is you project original and innovative? Do you think it inspires other and deserves to be recognized as good practices in regional development? Submit your project and give it a go! The online application platform is open from 19 February until 9 May 2019.
