(Rome, 26 February 2019) The Modular projects of the MED Sustainable Tourism Community are invited to apply for the REGIOSTARS 2019 Awards. Handed out by the European Commission, the REGIOSTARS are awarded to EU-funded projects working towards regional development, and aim at “inspiring other regions and project managers across Europe”. The call for application is open until 9 May 2019.

There are five categories of projects for which REGIOSTARS are awarded:

  • SMART GROWTH: Promoting digital transformation
  • SUSTAINABLE GROWTH: Connecting green, blue and grey
  • INCLUSIVE GROWTH: Combatting inequalities and poverty
  • Urban development: Building climate-resilient cities
  • Topic of the year 2019: Modernising health services

Applications must be submitted by the project manager with the endorsement of the Managing Authority, which provided EU funding (European regional development fund, Cohesion fund, European Social Fund, Pre-accession instrument or European Neighbourhood Instrument) for the project. The different applications will be assessed by a jury of high-level academics.

The deadline for submitting your applications on the online platform is 9 May 2019. The winners of each category will receive their prizes in Brussels in October 2019.
