Małopolska Region Brussels Office
Małopolska Region office in Brussels was set up in order to represent the interest of our region on the European forum. By being present in the European capital, we are able to monitor the progress of crucial policies. That gives us a first-hand view of the opportunities that it creates for our region.
A wide network of direct contacts with the European institutions and other regional representations allows us to include the strategic interest of Małopolska into the discussion on the future shape of the EU policies.
To ensure better recognition and a positive image of Małopolska among the policy makers in the European Union, we are constantly undertaking promotional events, which include the annual Malopolska Days in Brussels (more info on the last edition).
Our office serves also as a source of the European information for the local and regional government, as well as other stakeholders from the region (entrepreneurs, NGOs, schools, etc.). One of the tools of transferring the information about the current trends in the EU policies, is our bimonthly electronic magazine “Closer to Brussels”.
Each year we are organising several study visits for the employees of Małopolska regional authorities. These visits allow civil servants to get a better understanding of the workings of European institutions, as well as establish vital professional contacts.
Małopolska Region Brussels Office is a part of the Marshal’s Office of the Małopolska Region. Małopolska was among the first Polish regions to set up a regional representation in Brussels – it was opened in 2002, two years before the accession to the European Union.
Our office is located in the heart of the European district in Brussels, rue Luxembourg 3.
