Welcome to the European Regional Economic Forum Network!
The EREF Network (European Regional Economic Forum Network) is an informal group of European regions, which together with the Municipality of Maribor and the Slovenian Government Office for Local Self-Government and Regional Policy, organize in early June the annual European Regional Economic Forum.
Prior to the Forum, 3 - 4 workshops are organized in EREF partner regions/countries, addressing one of the specific topics of the Forum agenda for the year. The preparatory workshops produce the draft-recommendations addressing stakeholders, regional/local, national and EU policy makers in the domains of knowledge economy.
Since 2005, EREF gradually evolved into a European Network, with the Slovenian Business & Research Association serving as its Secretariat. In 2007 the Municipality of Nova Gorica created the EREF Network for South Eastern Europe.
If you are interested in attending the Forum taking place on the 6th and 7th June 2011, please register and enjoy the website’s content.
