Local infrastructure investment in Europe – clearing the path to the green and digital transitions
Strong public investment plays a central role in the European Union's COVID-19 recovery plan. Looking to turn challenge into opportunity, the majority of this investment is being channelled towards the other big challenges we face: climate change and digitalisation. Local infrastructure investment is an important delivery point of EU policy implementation. The EIB 2020 municipality survey provides important insights into investment needs, priorities and barriers. The CoR is rolling out its RegHub survey in 2021, which zooms in on planning and permitting issues. Both surveys pay close attention to the challenges of the green and digital transformations. The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about key findings to improve transition investment. This event is organised in the framework of the European Week of the Regions and Cities (EWRC), by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Committee of the Region's Network of Regional Hubs (RegHub).
