Released a comic book demonstrating regional and urban development policy

The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy has just published a brand new comic book (EN, PDF) called "Partners" which aims at presenting Regional and Urban Policy through six stories designed to appeal to a young audience.

The themes covered in this album are Research & Innovation, Urban Development, Environment, Support to SMEs, Social Inclusion, ICT, Cooperation between regions, Transport, Solidarity between regions in case of natural disasters, etc.

These slices of life and stories of men and women were inspired by real EU-funded projects that illustrate the European Union's contribution to reducing differences in standards of living and supporting the regions in their development.

The comic is also available for download from EC official publication bureau in french (FR) and flemish (NL).
