The aim is to look into innovative solutions which help implementing the Nature Directives when addressing pressing urban and regional challenges like flood protection, wellbeing and health, and the protection of our natural capital.
The European Commission aims to gather information on the regions' research and innovation (R&I) needs and on obstacles which may be hindering them from investing in nature-based solutions.
High-level speakers will come together, ranging from policy specialists of the European Commission and CoR members to hands-on best practice from Europe's regions.
