The European Entrepreneurial Region (EER) label given by the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) rewards regions with the most credible and forward-looking entrepreneurial vision. This year the city of Gdańsk in cooperation with the Pomorskie Region, the Business Region of Gothenburg and the region of Navarra were selected as winners for their outstanding strategies and commitment to boosting entrepreneurship within their territories.President of the European Committee of the Regions, Karl-Heinz Lambertz, congratulated the winners saying, “This year’s European Entrepreneurial Region award is proof that by allowing the business community to flourish, regions and cities can create jobs and are the social fabric of Europe. The winners are an inspiration to us all proving that through cooperation, innovative thinking and building the right conditions locally, they are the drivers of sustainable growth in Europe.”
The joint application of the City of Gdańsk and the Pomorskie Region is based on a coherent set of growth-promoting activities. Demographic changes and population ageing is a challenge for the region, as well as for other territories in Poland. Gdańsk/Pomorskie’s EER strategy is based on the recruitment and development of skilled human resources and investing in entrepreneurship. The region was selected based on its impressive set of targeted actions dedicated to attracting, developing and retaining talents, nurturing start-ups and innovative SMEs and providing business education to young people.
The Gothenburg Region is one of Europe’s fastest growing metropolitan regions by means of urban development and infrastructure investments. Gothenburg’s EER strategy has a focus in improving the business climate and creating better conditions for SMEs to flourish. For this the strategy includes six strategic areas: skill supply, power of attraction, infrastructure and accessibility, land readiness, business climate and innovation power.
The region of Navarra as a pioneering region in supporting entrepreneurship in Spain, aims to improve the rate of entrepreneurial activity in the local population. The region is currently developing its 2020-2022 entrepreneurship plan that sets out targeted actions needed to continue on the path of improving enterprise survival rate, annual growth and entrepreneurial activity rate indicators. The region’s “Smart Specialisation Strategy – Navarra S3″, includes main pillars as promoting entrepreneurship, reduction of regulatory burden, access to finance and markets and internationalization.”The Government of Navarre is committed to a socially and territorially cohesive Navarra, open and interconnected, made up of creative and entrepreneurial persons engaged in a modern and competitive economy, that stands out for its industrial strengths, its commitment to the environment, health and quality of life, in a setting of transparency and trust, to become a benchmark in sustainable development”, said Manu Ayerdi, Vice-President of the Government of Navarra.The European Entrepreneurial Region (EER) award is a project that each year identifies and rewards three EU territories, which show an outstanding and innovative entrepreneurial policy strategy, irrespective of their size, wealth and competences. The territories with the most credible, forward-looking and promising plan are granted the label “European Entrepreneurial Region” (EER) for the following year.The EER jury – composed of CoR members, representatives of EU institutions, social partners and territorial associations – will monitor the implementation of the prize-winning regional strategies throughout 2020 with the aim of providing the winners with an objective outside view on their policies and the progress made during that year. Die EER 2020 winners can share and discuss their main results and achievements with other regional and local authorities as a part of the EER network.
