On 19 October 2015, the European Committee of the Regions will offer a free online course (or MOOC: Massive Open Online Course) in English on “Regions, EU institutions and policy-making” for all interested in the EU and its regions and cities. Registration is open until 31 August 2015.
During eight weeks, about 50 politicians, experts and academics will have their voice on topics such as EU cohesion policy, smart specialisation, migration and access to EU programmes. The course consists of videos, fact-sheets and live debates to be web-streamed from the Committee of the Regions, plus a social forum. Those who finish 80% of the course can receive a Statement of Participation.
