Founded in 1992, the European Association of Development Agencies gathers people working on economic development through a large network of 66 members throughout 21 countries in the European Union and beyond.
Regional development agencies are a designated meeting place between local actors. They carry out an economic development mission characterised by the search of the collective or overall interest of an area (and not corporative or sectorial) and which are significantly linked with a local, metropolitan or regional authority with respect to management, financing or missions. In order to carry out this mission, they gather highly skilled professionals and are able to answer the specific needs of firms willing to develop their activities. As major economic actors in their regions, RDAs missions consist in assembling, coordinating and promoting best initiatives.
The EURADA network connects its members with all kind of economic development practitioners such as RDAs, business partners and European authorities.
