ERRIN, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network, facilitates knowledge exchange, joint action and project partnerships with the aim to strengthen its member region's research and innovation capacities and enhance their success in EU programmes. ERRIN also aspires to influence EU policies in order to make them respond better to the needs of European regions and, to this end, engages in debate with EU institutions and participates in EU policy consultations.

ERRIN, the European Regions Research and Innovation Network, is a dynamic network of more than 90 EU regions and their Brussels-based offices.

ERRIN members meet regularly in thematic working groups and at key network events to exchange information and know-how about EU funding and project opportunities, present regional good practice, build transnational consortia and develop joint projects.

ERRIN is also partner to key strategic coordination actions and projects of benefit to all ERRIN members.

The ERRIN representative to the StAB is Francesca Ricardi di Netro, from the region of Veneto, which leads the Energy and Climate Change working group.
