The Policy Learning Platforms are a new feature of the Interreg Europe programme. They aim to open up the programme’s knowledge for the benefit of a wider group of regional policy stakeholders.
There is one Policy Learning Platform per Thematic Priority covered by Interreg Europe:

   - Research and innovation

   - SME competitiveness

   - Low-carbon economy

   - Environment and resource efficiency

The platforms are created as a tool for continuous learning within the communities of like-minded policy makers, practitioners and experts dealing with regional development policies in Europe. The aim is to improve the implementation of Structural Funds and other regional development policies in these four areas.

Each platform features:

   - Knowledge and Education Centre for relevant policy recommendations, thematic studies, reports, evaluations, EU policy news, databases of good practices etc.

   - Networking and partnering opportunities including organisation of relevant activities and events, online discussion hours, database of practitioners and owners of good practices etc.

   - Expert Helpdesk for policy advice, upon request for targeted advice and guidance to improve public policies design and implementation.

   - Expert support for policy learning, upon request including peer reviews, benchmarking exercises, thematic workshops, capacity building events, learning activities etc.
These services of the platforms are under development and they will be accessible in 2017.

In order to make them most useful for you and your institution we would like to include your feedback and ideas already in the preparation phase of the services.
