Looks to me like an interaction effect:
The dummy for cohort tells you how much the average
education differs over cohorts, and you think that
this difference differs across regions, so the
interaction effect between cohort and region gives
you this difference in difference, and -regress- will
automatically give you the standard error.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
