Every two years, the Commitee of Regions and Cities (CoR) holds a European Summit of Regions and Cities. These summits bring elected representatives from regional and local authorities together to discuss the main challenges facing the European Union. In this occasion Martin Brynskov, chair of OASC and Coordinator of the EU project OrganiCity, will attend the conference in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Bratislava will host the 7th Summit of Regions and Cities to be held on 8-9 July 2016. Gathering over 700 participants and open to all CoR members, this major event coincides with the start of the Slovakian EU Presidency that begins on 1 July.

Under the title 'Invest and Connect', EU leaders and representatives from both the public and private sector will consider how to strengthen connections between Europe's people, places, ideas and resources through investment. A number of side events, such as concerts and public debates, are also planned over the two days.
