An independent network of regional authorities in wider Europe, bringing together nearly 230 regions from 35 countries along with 15 interregional organisations. Established in 1985, AER is a forum for interregional co- operation and a lobbyist for regional interests on the European stage. AER’s policies are driven by a Presidium and Bureau consisting of regional presidents and high-level politicians. Those policies are implemented within three working Committees and two Standing Committees, which are chaired by regional politicians and co-ordinated by staff within AER’s General Secretariat in Strasbourg and Brussels.
