Established in 1985, AER is a forum for interregionalco-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 transversal issues, which are chaired by regional politicians and co-ordinated by staff within AER’s General Secretariat in Strasbourg and Brussels. The committees are pragmatic, non-bureaucratic structures that continuously evolve and respond to the diverse needs of AER members.
