Representation of the South Moravian Region to the EU in Brussels cooperates with other European regions, promotes the South Moravian region abroad, establishes new contacts, provides information about current events in European politics, presents and promotes the interests of the region to the European institutions and contributes to the sustainable development of the South Moravian region.
The Representation regularly provides information about new EU legislation, European funds and programmes, project partnerships and competitions. We send reports from conferences and workshops to relevant stakeholders in the South Moravian Region, prepare and implement seminars, represent the region on working groups and facilitate presentations of speakers from the South Moravian region.
The Representation also provides contacts between responsible representatives of European institutions and South Moravian representatives from policy, public administration, science and business spheres. It organizes presentation events: exhibitions, film screenings, sale events of South Moravian artists and others. About 8 students or workers from our partner institutions spend an internship with us every year.
Expected benefits of our activities are: direct access to new information about politics, legislation and funding programmes of the EU, establishing alliances with other regions, influencing EU politics, increased interest in cooperation with entities from the South Moravian region, development of tourism in the region.
