The Irish Regions European Office (IREO) is a specialised support service which acts as a bridge between Irish local and regional government and the European Union, explaining and guiding its stakeholders through the Brussels scene and promoting Irish interests and best practices at the European level.
Operating as part of the Eastern and Midland Regional Assembly and with the support of the Department for Housing, Planning and Local Government, our focus is on bringing the EU closer to the wider local government sector and vice versa.
"#CohesionPolicy must fulfill its role in supporting research infrastructure in all EU regions" says @EamonDooley, emphasizing importance of creating European networks of regional innovation ecosystems & hubs. http://bit.ly/2YNUfIV & http://bit.ly/35jIVrF. #CoRPlenary

One of the four key functions of the Irish Regions European Office is to enable local and regional actors to make the most of having their own permanent physical presence at the heart of Europe with all that entails in terms of tapping into useful connections.
