Objective

Throughout the network's thirty-year existence, the Four Motors for Europe have remained firmly committed to a close and continuous cooperation that will benefit the citizens living in their territories. Against a backdrop of European integration Baden-Württemberg, Lombardy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Catalonia have long aspired to be at the forefront of European development in a range of fields including innovation, creativity and culture, while at the same time maintaining their commitment to global challenges. 

In the framework of the Catalan rotating presidency, the Four Motors for Europe, together with the collaboration of CIDOB, organizes a working session with think tanks and institutional participation from the four regions. The session will address global challenges, regional cooperation and the role of regions in the development of the 2030 Agenda and the implementation of the European Green Deal.
