The European Association of Development Agencies (EURADA) has a membership of  about 150 regional development agencies from across the European Union. Agencies from almost all the Member States of the EU are EURADA members. EURADA runs conferences and seminars and has an extensive publications programme. It keeps its members up to date with EU policy developments and provides briefing on critical issues such as state aid rules. It alerts members to funding and contract opportunities and helps with forming and running partnerships.

EURADA brings together and disseminates good practice in economic development for the benefit of its members. From 2009 it has run an annual university-based summer school to help members enhance the competence of their management teams. EURADA has strong international links, particularly through the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) in the United States, but also with economic development networks in China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. There is a good record of members using these links to pursue their own local objectives.
