The selection procedure – last modified in 2014 – integrated recommendations from stakeholders relating in particular to monitoring proposals in order to enhance their European dimension, improving competition between candidate cities, and redefining the role of the selection panel. The initiative is now open to cities in candidate countries or potential candidates for EU membership and EFTA/EEA countries every third year as of 2021. The chronological order of countries hosting the title until 2033 (see Figure 1) is set by the European Parliament and Council.
