On 8/9 September 2014 the European Commission will organise the 6th Cohesion Forum in Brussels. The Forum will bring together more than 700 representatives from EU institutions, national, regional and local authorities, social and economic partners, NGOs and the academic world.
 
The Forum will focus on the relation between structural reforms, fiscal consolidation and public investment in the context of a European economy characterised by sluggish growth and high unemployment.
 
The participants of the Forum will discuss which policies should be pursued to support a fast and strong recovery and the contribution of European investments.
 
Thematic workshops will focus on the effective delivery of the European Structural and Investment Funds, the role of efficient administrations and institutions, multilevel governance, partnership and local development.
