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. 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.
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 strategic interests of Małopolska into discussion on the future shape of EU policies.
To ensure a better recognition and a positive image of our region, we are constantly undertaking promotional events, such as exhibitions, concerts, etc.
Our office also serves as a source of information about the EU for the local and regional authorities as well as for other stakeholders from the region (entrepreneurs, NGOs, schools, etc.).
Each year we organise several study visits for civil servants from regional authorities of Malopolska. These visits allow them to get improve their understanding of European institutions, as well as establish new professional contacts.
Małopolska Region Brussels Office is part of the Marshal’s Office of the Małopolska Region.
