They will be discussing how to harness EU funding to tackle problems of deprivation.
Britain's only such EU-funded project, the Young People's Task Force, is under threat says local Cynon Valley MP Ann Clwyd despite its success. She said the UK government had objected to an application for continuation of European funding.
The project, which received £100,000 from the EU's Social Exclusion Fund, works with disaffected 16 to 18 year-olds, providing them with training, work experience and discipline, all designed to increase the young people's self-esteem.
The Welsh project is 'twinned' with a similar Irish venture operating in Athlone.
