    Europe – Our Key to Success

    The European network – our key to success

    If a politician or an entrepreneur is asked what constitutes a key element of his or her success, networking will definitely be one of the his or her first answers. Our network has been the cornerstone of the IRE since its very beginning in 2004. Until today, more than 100 regions, cities, companies and cooperation partners have chosen the IRE as a principal interlocutor for the promotion and support of their interests on the European level.

    To this purpose, the IRE works strongly with the institutions of the European Union: the European Commission, the representations of the European Commission in the member states and in the candidate countries, the Committee of the Regions (CoR), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the European Parliament and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). Furthermore, the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe supports the IRE in various occasions.
