The Hanse Office has since many years as a member of the so-called “Baltic Sea Group” taken part in the Open Days. The Open Days have by now become the biggest conference world-wide in the field of regional policy. They are co-organised by the Commitee of Regions, the European Commission and the regional offices located in Brussels (4th until 7th of October).
