Bringing regional partners closer to Europe
“As CEO of GPM as well as Frédéric Soudain, Executive Director of Logos Public Affairs (MCI), I was very proud to launch in 2015 at the European Business Summit (EBS) the idea of a new European Federation called FEDRA, the Federation of Regional Growth Actors in Europe.”
This non-profit association aims at filling the gap between Europe and the local and regional key players. GPM is working closely with FEDRA when it comes to share experts or to bring partners together aiming at defending and promoting the local or regional dimension. Dissemination of projects/best practices to 20.000 key regional players over all in Europe and the Brussels based regional expertise hub are the two main pillars of FEDRA. The Regional flavours initiative, the Young Regional Ambassadors initiative (YRA) with its 115 young regional ambassadors in more than 100 regions are successful.
