The Policy Learning Platform

The Policy Learning Platform is the second pillar of the Interreg Europe programme, established to boost EU-wide policy learning and capitalisation on practices from regional development policies. The aim of the platform is to make the knowledge and solutions developed by Interreg Europe projects accessible and usable by other regions. Consequently, the Policy Learning Platform offers networking, knowledge sharing and policy learning opportunities to any interested region in Europe, including those not involved in a project funded by Interreg Europe. The Policy Learning Platform is therefore a hub of information and services to facilitate continuous learning mainly among local and regional public authorities in Europe where they can find solutions to improve the way they manage and implement their public policies.

The client is the joint secretariat of Interreg Europe. The project is part of a framework contract with a duration of seven years (started in 2017).
