The European Week of Regions and Cities 2022 (#EURegionsWeek) is fast approaching and we would like to invite you to join our events.

On October 12, from 9:30 to 11:00 CEST, Eurostat and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will host the workshop “Facts Matter: Data stories on regional development”.

The workshop will be live via Zoom, and registration is now open via Swapcard, an easy-to-use system that allows you to not only register, but also engage with the community, network and schedule one-on-one meetings with our speakers. .

The session will show how regional statistics can help differentiate the impact of crises in a complex environment and help decision-makers choose the best policies to deal with crises and promote recovery. Paolo Veneri, Deputy Head of the Economic Analysis, Data and Statistics Division of the OECD, and Eurostat statisticians Bianka Fohgrub, Aleksandra Galic and Oliver Heiden from the Regional Statistics and Geographic Information Unit will speak during the event.

The OECD will present data stories from the upcoming Panorama of Regions and Cities, covering economic, demographic, social and environmental aspects.

Eurostat will present examples from the Eurostat Regional Yearbook 2022 and the interactive edition of the regions of Europe, both of which will be published and made available online on 7 October.

On October 13 at 10:30 CEST, Eurostat will host a 15-minute exhibitor pitch, “Explore your region’s statistics!”.

In addition, Eurostat’s virtual exhibition “Your free access to European regional statistics” will be accessible via Swapcard from mid-September.
