This issue opens with a report from the Austrian presidency on how their team has prepared negotiations in the Council on the legislative package 2021-2027.  Our interview this time is a joint talk with both Minister-president Malu Dreyer and Economics Minister Dr Volker Wissing from the Rhineland-Palatinate. We also explore what EU funds have done for the European Year of Cultural Heritage, how they are helping regions undergoing industrial transition, and profile some of the projects supported through the Urban Innovative Actions programme.

In our In Your Own Words section we hear from Castilla-La-Mancha, Finland and South Poland, and we also hear from younger people via their experiences with the Interreg Volunteer Youth programme, and the Youth4Regions media programme. We chat to this year’s Regiostars winners, look back at some images from this year’s European Week of Regions and Cities, and feature some highlights from the recently published Eurostat 2018 Regional yearbook. The projects section visits Poland, Denmark, Slovakia, Italy and Greece.
