European commissioner Danuta Hübner to speak on regional policy of the EU

Page Contents >

A driving ambition of the European Union is to foster new opportunities in the regions and cities of Europe, as the current economic and social disparities between member states weaken its overall dynamism.

Danuta Hübner, a member of the European Commission, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Thursday 3 February exploring the issues related to regional policy and the Lisbon Agenda.

She will ask how is the Union attempting to harness the joint efforts of member states, regions and citizens? Can the opportunities presented by the Lisbon agenda be realised? And what challenges is the Union facing with regard to regional policy?

Since May 2004 Danuta Hübner has been a member of the European Commission, and assumed responsibility for regional policy and cohesion in November when the new Commission took office. Previously the Polish minister for European affairs, and before then the head of office of the Committee for European Integration and secretary of state, she was instrumental in Polish accession to the European Union.

Regional Policy and the Lisbon Agenda - challenges and opportunities is on Thursday 3 February at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all but a ticket is required.
